Root canal therapy is performed to restore a significantly decayed, infected, or damaged tooth back to health and function. In most cases, our dentists will recommend root canal therapy over tooth extraction because the root canal therapy will allow you to keep your natural tooth and will not harm the surrounding teeth. We may suggest root canal therapy if:
- An infection or abscess has developed inside the tooth
- Decay has reached the tooth pulp
- The tooth has recently been injured or traumatized
Our dentists do everything in their power to ensure that your root canal treatment is as comfortable and relaxing as possible. Following the therapy, we will place a crown over the tooth for protection as well as beauty. If you experience any dental pain or discomfort, contact our office as soon as possible. We will do all we can to help you return to optimal oral health and comfort.
