Missing teeth pose a sobering risk to your long-term dental health. A
root canal can restore teeth with roots that have been injured or
infected, situations that used to mean enduring an extraction. A root
canal is a procedure that repairs a tooth by removing the pulp chamber
and stuffing the space with filling material. This is often unavoidable
when dental decay reaches the nerve of the tooth (or the tooth has
become infected), and extends past the recovery of a simple filling. We
are skilled in advanced root canal therapy.
In the past, the root canal acquired an undeserved reputation as something to be avoided. However, with modern anesthetics and technology, root canals are actually a manageable form of treatment. One of the ways we increase your comfort is the use of "rotary endodontics" to perform your root canal. This means our instruments are electrically powered and uses a tip that is made of nickel titanium, which is far more flexible than stainless steel. This gives us more control and you smoother, quieter, more comfortable treatment.
