Root Canal Therapy

Teeth with roots that have been injured or infect­ed used to require extrac­tion, which can cause a lot of prob­lems and should be avoid­ed when­ev­er pos­si­ble. The roots of a tooth can become dam­aged when a cav­i­ty goes untreat­ed for an extend­ed peri­od of time and decay pen­e­trates all the way to the pulp, dam­ag­ing the nerve and often caus­ing infec­tion.

 

A root canal is a pro­ce­dure to fix a tooth by remov­ing the pulp cham­ber of the tooth and fill­ing it with a fill­ing mate­r­i­al. This is done to save a tooth that would oth­er­wise have to be extract­ed.

 

In the not too dis­tant past, root canals would have required the tooth to be extract­ed. When den­tists start­ed per­form­ing root canals, they were quite painful, and the root canal has received a rep­u­ta­tion as some­thing to be avoid­ed. The good news is that we are well expe­ri­enced in advanced root canal ther­a­py. With mod­ern anes­thet­ics and tech­nol­o­gy, the root canals we can per­form in our prac­tice are tol­er­a­ble and some­times even pain­less.
