One of the most common types of dental procedures that we perform is root canal therapy. Root canal therapy is required when the dental pulp inside your tooth becomes infected or injured. The dental pulp provides your tooth with nerves and minerals; however, if it becomes injured, it can harm your entire tooth’s health. This can happen from a number of causes, including severe decay, injury or trauma.
During your root canal therapy, you will first be given an anesthesia to ensure your complete comfort. The dental pulp is then carefully removed and the inner pulp chamber is refilled with a dental material. The tooth is then resealed and a dental crown, porcelain inlay/onlay is attached to the tooth to completely restore it.
While root canal treatments may sound scary for some patients, you can rest assured you’re in good hands. Our practice has been open for over 40 years which means that we have a lot of experience performing root canal treatments and providing our patients with exceptional dental care.
