Root Canal Treatment
Root canal therapy is commonly performed when the dental pulp becomes inflamed or infected due to deep decay, old restoration, cracks, or trauma. During root canal therapy the pulp of the tooth is removed painlessly under profound anesthesia and then roots are filled with a suitable filling material. Teeth may have 1 to 4 main canals depending on tooth position in the mouth. Extra canals may branch out and are called “accessory canals”.
We use our expertise, experience and advanced technology including operating microscopes and 3D imaging to find and successfully treat the entire root canal space. Endodontic therapy combined with an appropriate restoration by your dentist can add decades of service to the tooth that otherwise would be extracted.
