Root Canal Treatment

Our office specializes in root canal treatment, a vital procedure for saving teeth that are severely decayed or infected. Our expert team is committed to providing a comfortable and effective root canal treatment experience, using the latest techniques to preserve your natural teeth and maintain your oral health.

Understanding Root Canal Treatment

A root canal is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or infected. The procedure involves removing the damaged area of the tooth (the pulp), cleaning and disinfecting it, and then filling and sealing it. The common causes leading to a root canal include deep decay, repeated dental procedures on the tooth or a crack or chip in the tooth.

The Process of Root Canal Treatment

Our experienced dentists will start the root canal procedure by administering local anesthesia to ensure your comfort. The tooth is then isolated with a rubber dam to keep it clean and dry during the procedure. We remove the infected or inflamed pulp, carefully clean the inner chamber of the tooth, and shape it for filling. The space is then filled with a biocompatible material and sealed. In most cases, further restoration with a crown is recommended to protect and restore the tooth to full function.

Benefits of Root Canal Treatment

  • Pain Relief: Eliminates pain caused by the infected or decayed tooth.
  • Tooth Preservation: Allows for saving your natural tooth and avoiding extraction.
  • Prevention of Infection Spread: Stops the spread of infection to other teeth.
  • Restored Functionality: Enables normal biting force and sensation in the tooth.
  • Aesthetic Solution: Often capped with a crown, the tooth can look as good as new.
