Saving Hopeless Teeth
In the past, root canal procedures were something a patient avoided because the procedure was quite painful. But with today’s modern techniques and anesthetics, they are often painless and very manageable. A root canal will save a tooth, instead of losing it to extraction. This is important because missing even one tooth can cause problems for your remaining teeth.
We are very experienced in root canals. The essence of the procedure is to remove the pulp chamber in the interior of the tooth and replace it with a filling material. Sometimes a crown is placed over the tooth to give it added strength. Your tooth will be saved and regain its full functionality.
