Root Canal Therapy
Most people believe that a root canal is filled with pain and discomfort.
Advances in dental technology have made root canal therapy virtually a pain-free experience.
Once the pulp of a tooth has become infected, your choices are limited. An extraction is only a short-term solution. While it does remove the source of infection, it sets off a chain reaction of shifting teeth, bone loss and other dental problems. The only way to save your tooth and keep it in your mouth is to remove the infection with a root canal treatment. The tooth is then restored with a crown to prevent fractures.
