What Is Endodontic Therapy?

Endodontic therapy, more commonly known as root canal treatment, refers to services and procedures used to treat issues with the interior of the tooth, specifically the tooth root. Our team offers endodontic therapy to provide relief from painful dental conditions that affect the tooth and tooth root and save your teeth in cases of trauma, decay, or infection.

What Can I Expect From Root Canal Treatment?

Root canals are often associated with pain and discomfort by most patients. However, if your dentist tells you that you need a root canal, there's no need to panic. Here is what you need to know about endodontic therapy:

  • Root canal treatment is a dental procedure that our dentists perform to remove infected dental pulp and nerves from inside a tooth.
  • The procedure is designed to prevent further pain and future infection.
  • Root canal treatment is used to quickly relieve the discomfort that you feel due to the infection, such as swelling, drainage, and pain.

To begin, our dentist will remove the infected pulp tissue and clean out the root canals of the tooth. Next, our dentist will fill the inside of your tooth and then seal it with either color-matched resin or porcelain filling to seamlessly blend with the rest of your natural enamel. If you need additional tooth restoration, our dentist may use a dental crown to restore the look, strength, and function of your tooth. As you can see, root canals are simple, straightforward, and gentle procedures used to save teeth and give you back your good oral health.
