Root Canals 101
A root canal procedure may be necessary when you have a severe tooth infection or have a tooth subjected to trauma. For toothache pain relief, root canals are here to help. Root canals involve us gaining access to the root canals of your tooth, where the infected pulp is located. We get out all of that infected pulp, use antibiotics to stave off further infection, and then fill your root canals with a biocompatible material that acts as healthy pulp. Once that portion of the root canal process is complete, we will place a temporary crown as we allow the site to heal. Once healed, we’ll place a permanent crown customized to your smile and bite. You won’t even be able to tell the difference, except you will notice toothache relief almost instantaneously. Don’t wait in root canal pain. Our highly-skilled and professional team will take care of you every step along the way to a smile that’s as healthy as it is beautiful.
