Root Canal Therapy

Are you suffering from chronic tooth pain due to dental decay? Have you experienced a dental trauma? You may need root canal therapy. Root canals can preserve your natural tooth and prevent the need for a tooth extraction down the road. Our skilled team performs gentle root canal therapy to alleviate your pain and give you back a healthy, fully functioning smile!

What is a Root Canal Therapy?

Root canal

When you have a severely damaged or infected tooth, we can remove the defective pulp inside of your tooth’s canals. Once the pulp is removed, we disinfect the area and use a filling called gutta-percha to prevent future infections. Depending on your needs, we may top your tooth with a dental crown for additional protection. Root canal therapy is a common procedure geared towards preserving your oral health and your natural teeth. If you think that you may need a root canal, please reach out to our office as soon as possible to schedule your consultation!

The root canal procedure is actually pretty simple and stress-free. We thoroughly numb the area around the tooth and we also offer some sedation options for additional comfort. Most patients report feeling almost-instant relief after their root canal treatment. While it may sound intimidating, root canal therapy is actually nothing to fear!

What can I do to prevent needing a root canal?

One of the best ways to prevent the need for a root canal is to maintain a proper at-home oral hygiene regimen by brushing twice a day for two minutes each and flossing daily. We also recommend attending biannual dental cleanings and exams. This gives our team a chance to examine your smile to catch any dental issues while they’re still small!
