It’s not the terrifying experience you may think.
With our doctors, it’s a simple, painless procedure.
A root canal is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected. (So if you keep your teeth in tip-top shape you may never have to get one!)
During this procedure, we go into the center of your tooth in order to remove the pulp and nerve to prevent further damage inside. Anesthesia will need to be administered to the area of the tooth beforehand. Then we clean the entire area around it, making sure there is no residue left for the infection to continue to grow. Finally we’ll cap it, so no further bacteria can get inside your tooth.
As we said, it may seem like a scary process, but our doctors are so experienced and skilled at the procedure that you won’t even know what’s happening! They’ll make sure it’s quick and painless, so you can get on with your life minus the toothache.
