There’s more to your teeth than you realize. Beneath the enamel is a hollow area called the root canal, which contains the soft pulp that allows your body to nourish the tooth during development. If the root canal suffers from decay or infection, the damage could eventually cause you to lose your tooth altogether. Fortunately, root canal therapy at Davis, Roberts, Boeller & Rife can both preserve the tooth and prevent the damage from getting any worse! Call us today if you think one of your teeth may be in need of root canal therapy.
Many patients are anxious when told that they need root canal therapy, but this routine procedure is actually a lot simpler and comfortable than you might realize. We’ll numb your mouth and administer sedation as appropriate so that you don’t experience any pain. During the treatment, we’ll create an access hole in the tooth so that we can take out the infected materials and clean the root canal. Once the treatment is done, we’ll fill the now-empty space and restore the tooth with a crown.
