We Don’t Give Up on Infected or Damaged Teeth
In the past, teeth that had infected or damaged roots were simply extracted. Today, it is recognized that it is important to save teeth, as missing teeth can cause other dental problems. Our doctors are well experienced in the most advanced procedure of root canal therapy. During this treatment, the interior of the pulp chamber of a tooth is removed and replaced with a filling material that is different from a filling for a cavity restoration. Sometimes the tooth will need more strength for full functioning, so a crown is placed over the tooth. When root canals were first performed, they acquired a dreaded reputation among patients. But all that has changed. Today, modern technology and anesthetics make the procedure easy for a patient, with little or no pain.
