Restoring the Health and Function of Your Tooth
When you hear the words “root canal,” your first initial reaction might be a sense of fear due to its common reputation. But, thanks to the modern advances in technology, techniques and local anesthesia, root canals are not as painful as they use to be. In fact, they actually are quite the opposite — they free you from tooth discomfort.
So, what exactly is a root canal? A root canal is a type of endodontic treatment performed to restore an infected or severely damaged tooth. It involves our dentist and team cleaning out the root of your teeth to remove the infection to avoid the need for an extraction.
