What is a Root Canal?

Sometimes, a tooth’s condition can deteriorate to the point where a traditional filling cannot save the tooth.

Fortunately, we offer a procedure that can save decayed or infected teeth and relieve the pain and discomfort that often comes from teeth that are infected and decayed.

Root canals are a procedure where we can repair and save teeth that may otherwise have to be extracted. During a root canal, a tooth’s damaged pulp – the inner part of the tooth that is composed of blood vessels and nerves – is removed from the inside of the tooth. The inside of the tooth is then cleaned and sealed, removing the infection and saving the tooth from having to be extracted.

Our staff of dental professionals have the training and experience to provide root canal therapy in a way that is pain free for our patients.

If you have teeth that are causing you pain or discomfort, we would like to visit with you to determine if root canal therapy is the treatment option best for you. You have been in pain long enough. We are here to help.
