Root Canal Therapy

Root Canal Therapy

Just the name causes one to cringe! But with today’s technology, root canal treatment can sometimes be completed in a single visit. When a tooth becomes infected due to a cavity or trauma, pain and swelling occur. A root canal removes the infected tissue within the canal allowing the tooth to be saved. After treatment, a crown or filling is placed to restore the tooth to its original function and appearance. With the proper protocol and medication, a root canal can be a quick and painless event.
