Root Canals

As one of the most performed dental procedures, root canal treatments are meant to relieve pain and potentially save your natural tooth. Preventing the need to pull the affected tooth, root canals help patients all over the globe avoid the need of dental implants and bridges.

When is a Root Canal Needed?

A root canal is usually needed in the event that the center of your tooth becomes infected, causing extreme pain.

What Happens During a Root Canal Treatment?

During a root canal, your dentist will remove the infected pulp, thoroughly clean, and seal the root canal system. It is likely you will require local anesthesia during the procedure, but it is completed in-office, and is considered a non-invasive and non-surgical procedure. Depending on the extent of infection or damage, more than one visit may be required to complete the endodontic therapy.

What Happens After a Root Canal?

After your initial visit, your root canal will require follow-up procedures to ensure the long-term functionality and health of your root canal tooth. Through restoration dentistry, you’ll be able to enjoy full use of your tooth and avoid future complications.
