Let us provide a long term solution to eliminate pain through state of the art technology and a comfortable process.
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.
In short, the tooth is drilled down through its center to remove the soft, central living tissue, which is either completely dead, or has become infected. This is then replaced with a filling, running from the top of the tooth, down into the jaw to replace the root of the tooth. While this may sound scary, it is done under local anesthesia and every care is taken to minimize patient discomfort.
