Many people are horrified at even the sound of the phrase “root canal.” We think of endodontics in a much more positive way. A root canal is not the source of all that pain and discomfort – quite the opposite – root canals end your pain and save a tooth that might otherwise need to be pulled due to disease or decay! Root canals are so named because the procedure involves cleaning and clearing the root canals of your teeth.
We will open your tooth just the way we would to prepare a cavity, gently clear away all traces of infection, sterilize and refill your tooth with a special sealant, and top it all off with a protective crown. Your toothache is gone, your tooth is saved, and your smile is renewed!
