What is Root Canal Therapy?

Root canal therapy, also known as a root canal, is a highly effective endodontic procedure recommended when the tooth’s pulp and nerves are infected or damaged. It is essential to address this condition promptly, as it can lead to tooth death and potential extraction if left untreated. Our experienced dentists can perform this procedure to restore the tooth’s health and avoid the need for extraction.

During the root canal treatment, the infected and injured tissues inside the tooth are carefully removed by our skilled dentists. This is followed by a thorough cleaning of the tooth’s interior, after which a medicated material is used to fill the space. To ensure the tooth’s durability, a dental crown or other suitable restoration is placed on top, bringing it back to its original shape and structure. The procedure is typically completed in one or two comfortable visits, thanks to advanced techniques, tools and anesthesia.

It is worth noting that the fear of pain associated with root canals is mostly a misconception. With the latest advancements in dentistry, our dentists and the entire team strive to make the experience as comfortable as possible for each patient. Your satisfaction and well-being are of utmost importance to us. If you have any questions or concerns about root canal treatment, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us.
