A root canal is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or infected.
During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed. This is usually done in one office visit!
After a couple of weeks, we will place a permanent crown on the tooth for protection and to restore it to full function.
A root canal is an effective way to save a damaged tooth....and saving your natural teeth is always the best option!
