Commonly referred to as a root canal, root canal treatment is a type of endodontic therapy recommended if your tooth pulp and nerves become infected or damaged. You may end up with infected or damaged nerves if injury or decay makes its way to deep in your tooth, past the outer enamel layer. This can cause severe toothaches and dental paing, and if an affected tooth is left untreated, the infection and disease could kill the tooth and put you in the dentist office for a tooth extraction. To restore the health of the tooth and avoid the need for a tooth extraction, our dentist will remove the infected tissue from within the tooth, clean it and fill it with a medicated material. Our dentist will then use a dental crown or another kind of restoration to cap the tooth, restoring it back to its original shape and structure. In most cases, a root canal treatment will only require one or two comfortable visits to our office.
We know that root canal therapy has a reputation as being very painful, but the reality is, thanks to advanced techniques, tools and anesthesia, root canal treatment can often be completed with minimal discomfort. Dr. Stokes and our entire team will make providing you with a pleasant and comfortable experience a priority during your visit to our office for this treatment. We want to restore your oral health and smile, so contact us today to learn more about root canal therapy.
