What is a Root Canal?
Watch this video to learn more about root canal therapy and our ability to save damaged or infected teeth.
One of the most dreaded words in dentistry is root canal. Matter of fact, you may dread it so much, you don’t even know what it is. Well, a root canal is something we use to treat a damaged tooth. And a damaged tooth could be from decay, a crack. Any number of reasons why that nerve is unhappy is abscessed and needs to be treated in such a way where we can keep your tooth.
As you can see here, this tooth has these white stripes. That is root canal therapy that allows us to keep these teeth rather than pull the teeth like you used to in the old days. If you think you might have a damaged tooth that’s giving you trouble and you’re concerned about it, give us a call and we’ll see if root canal therapy is appropriate for you.
