Root Canal Therapy

The dentist may recommend a root canal treatment for a severely damaged, decaying tooth or a severe tooth infection (abscess). Root canals can allow your dentist to repair and save a tooth instead of removing it.

A root canal treatment usually takes 1 or 2 office visits to complete. There is little to no pain during the procedure because the dentist will use local anesthesia to numb the tooth. Once the process is complete, there will likely be little to no discomfort.With proper care, the restored tooth can last a lifetime.
