Patients often fear root canals when they hear that they need one, but developments in technology and in anesthetics have made root canals just another routine procedure. A root canal is done to save a tooth where an infection has taken place below the tooth and into the pulp inside the tooth. Your dentist will drill out the infected pulp, clean the empty space, and then seal it with a composite resin to prevent further infection. If left untreated, it is likely that the tooth will be lost.
Because we also offer a range of sedation options, you can rest assured that your root canal treatment will go as smoothly as possible. We take the time to understand your individual needs and provide treatment accordingly.
If you have any questions about how a root canal is done or if you think you may need one, don’t hesitate to call Northwoods Dentistry. We are here to brighten your smile and restore your confidence.Request Your Appointment
