Root canal

We do all that we can to maintain our healthy smile for as long as possible. No matter how hard we try to avoid tooth decay, sometimes a cavity forms in places where we can’t see.

The longer a surface cavity is left unchecked the more time it has to increase in size, and the deeper it can penetrate the tooth until it eventually gets to the nerve. This is where root canal therapy comes in to save your tooth and get you back to your pain-free everyday routine.

If you are experiencing mild to severe discomfort in one of your teeth then it’s time to have it examined. Simply fill out our contact form and one of our team members will reach out to set up an appointment.

What is a root canal?

It is easy to forget that inside each and every one of our hard teeth is a soft pulp that contains tiny blood vessels and nerve endings.

The root can become exposed if tooth decay or a receding gumline is left untreated. If this happens it can lead to an infection or increased tooth sensitivity.

A root canal is a procedure we use to remove the infected or injured pulp and fill it to preserve the tooth. Unlike the old days, this can be done in a single visit in most cases—you can learn more about the process below.

This can be done with minimal anxiety, discomfort or pain with our sedation dentistry options.
