Root canal therapy is a safe and (we promise) virtually painless procedure we use to save the most infected and painful teeth. We typically use it when a tooth has developed an infection deep inside it where the tooth’s nerve is housed. This infection can be quite excruciating, but root canal therapy can relieve this pain in as little as one appointment.
To perform a root canal, your dentist will create a small hole in your tooth to reach the pulp, remove it, clean and sanitize the tooth, and then fill it. Afterward, you’ll have the tooth restored with a dental crown to give it back its full strength and original form.
Do you have a toothache that just won’t go away? At DNL Dental, a root canal will always be the solution to your pain and never the cause. To get rid of your pain today, contact us for an appointment.
