When the nerve of a tooth becomes infected or inflamed, we may recommend a root canal as the optimal treatment for saving the tooth.
Our dental team knows that certain procedures may cause some anxiety, and root canals are no exception. We want to assure you that well planned, gentle treatment is always the right option because an infected tooth will never heal on its own, usually getting worse and more painful with time.
After the root canal procedure is complete, we’ll schedule one or more follow-up appointments to completely restore the tooth. Depending on your individual needs, we may use any number of techniques to restore the tooth, the most common of which involves the placing of a dental crown.
Whether your need for a root canal stems from a routine dental exam or an episode of oral pain, we will always discuss which treatment options best achieve the goal of saving the tooth.
If you have any questions about root canal therapy, please contact our office as we will be happy to provide more information and assist in any way that we can.
