Root Canals

Our dentists perform root canals to save a damaged tooth and prevent the need for the tooth to be extracted.

What is a Root Canal?

A root canal is a procedure where your dentist removes diseased material (blood vessels, nerves and other tissues) from the interior of a damaged tooth. Root canals prevent a damaged tooth from dying and needing to be removed.

Your dentist will begin by removing the diseased tissue from the tooth. Next, they will clean and disinfect the inner chamber and fill it with medicated material to prevent infection. To finish the procedure, the tooth is generally capped with a dental restoration, such as a dental crown. 

Why a Root Canal May Be Recommended

A root canal treatment helps relieve your symptoms and save your natural tooth. The procedure also limits the need for more extensive dental work in the future. 

By removing the decay and bacteria from the inner tooth, your dentist can help stop the spread of infection and preserve the healthy part of your tooth. 

Root canal patients generally report little pain or discomfort and with proper care, most teeth that have had root canal treatment can last a lifetime.
