Painful, damaged, or decayed teeth don’t always require extraction. In some cases, the tooth can be saved with a root canal.
In times past the staple technique of all dentists for teeth with significant decay was extraction. Today, root canal, or endodontic procedures can often allow even a badly damaged or decayed tooth to be restored to normal function. With proper care, a root canal can last the rest of the patient’s life.
Our team will take care to minimize any discomfort you may experience during the procedure. Following the root canal, a crown may be used to restore any part of the tooth that was removed.
