root canal

If you develop an issue with the deep supportive structure of your tooth – the portion of the tooth that contains the nerve as well as the "pulp" - a root canal may be prescribed to save your tooth. A root canal treatment involves the removal of the pulp from within the tooth. Then, the tooth is filled with an inert material to maintain its structural integrity. Finally, a lifelike porcelain crown is fitted over your natural tooth structure to recomplete your smile. Due to advances in dentistry, root canals are more comfortable than ever before, so if you find you need a root canal treatment, rest assured that our team's gentle touch will make all the difference.
