When the structure of a tooth has suffered damage or trauma, or the tooth has significant decay, a root canal may be necessary. A root canal procedure includes the extraction of the pulp of the tooth. After removing the pulp of the tooth, your tooth is then cleaned and sealed. In some cases, a crown is needed to protect the tooth from further damage.
A root canal can potentially save a tooth from being extracted if there is a deep cavity. Rather than removing the tooth, a root canal is a cost-effective way to save your tooth from being extracted, and possibly receiving an implant. We offer sedation dentistry to make the process as comfortable and as painless as possible. Once the infection is removed from your tooth, you will experience a relief from the pain.
