Root Canal Therapy


Having root canal therapy can prolong the life of your tooth and relieve symptomatic pain. We complete this procedure in our office using the latest technology.

While patients often associate root canal treatment with pain, its purpose is to alleviate discomfort, swelling, and infection from your tooth. Our dentists are gentle and properly anesthetize your tooth prior to treatment, making it a painless experience.

Root canal therapy is necessary to eliminate infection due to deep decay, trauma, or periodontal disease. Pain is frequently the first symptom associated with an infection in your tooth. Other symptoms include:

  • Swelling
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold
  • Throbbing
  • Pain when chewing
  • Discoloration

An oral evaluation in our office will allow our dentists to diagnose the need for root canal treatment. We will likely take an x-ray and, if necessary, perform vitality tests to determine the status of your tooth.

Root canal therapy removes the tissue and nerve from your tooth. While this is essential to save your tooth, it can make it more brittle. A dental crown will restore some strength back to your tooth and absorb some of the force from chewing.

Protecting your natural teeth and keeping them as long as possible is the best way to protect your oral health. Your teeth and bone have a dependent relationship and losing one affects the other. When you lose teeth, you begin to lose bone – putting your other teeth at risk by compromising them at their foundation.
