Dental Root Canal

Teeth with Root Problems Can Be Saved

A root canal will restore a tooth with infected or damaged roots to full functionality. Our doctors are well experienced in this procedure, and with modern techniques and anesthetics, patients find it very manageable.

In the past, teeth with root problems were extracted, but today it is known a tooth should be saved whenever possible. In most cases, having a root canal will take care of the problem. During the procedure, the pulp is removed from the interior of the tooth and then filled with a special material. Sometimes a crown is placed over the tooth for additional strength.
