Root Canals

A root canal is performed to remove the infected pulp from the inside of a badly decayed tooth. After the pulp is removed, the inside of the tooth is thoroughly disinfected and canals of the roots are filed, cleaned, and sealed. The tooth will then be restored with a crown or filling to strengthen the tooth and prevent it from fracture. The entire process is performed under local anesthesia so patients are comfortable and virtually painless.
