Root canal treatment is an effective and safe treatment used to repair and save a badly damaged or infected tooth instead of removing it. Saving a natural tooth avoids having to replace it with an artificial tooth. With dental advancements and local anesthetics, most people have little to no pain during a root canal procedure. In fact, it's probably more painful living with a decayed tooth. If you’re experiencing tooth pain, contact us to schedule an appointment and have your symptoms evaluated.
The success of root canal treatment occurs in nearly 90% of cases. The process involves removing the infected or injured tissue (pulp) from inside the crown and roots of a tooth. Once cleaned, the canal is disinfected, filled and sealed.
