Commonly called a root canal, endodontic therapy is a treatment that is often recommended when the tooth pulp and nerves become infected or damaged. This may occur if the tooth has been injured or has deep decay. When left untreated, this type of infection may cause the tooth to die. To restore the health of the tooth and avoid the need for an extraction, our skilled dentist will remove the infected tissues from within the tooth, clean the tooth, and fill it with a medicated permanent filling.
Root canals have a reputation for being a painful treatment. In reality, root canal treatment can often be completed with minimal discomfort thanks to advanced techniques and anesthesia.
