Root canal therapy is a type of endodontic treatment and is usually recommended to save a tooth when the dental pulp has become infected or sustained other damage. Root canals work to remove the damaged tooth tissue, restoring the health of the tooth so that you will not need an extraction or a more complex restorative treatment to replace the tooth.
When you receive a root canal, our dentists will remove the infected and injured tissues from within the tooth. We will then thoroughly clean the tooth and fill it with a medicated material to help prevent re-infection. The tooth will then be capped with a dental crown to protect it and restore its shape and strength. This process can usually be completed in just two appointments at Jennings & Larson Family Dentistry.
Advances in technologies and treatment techniques make it possible for you to receive a root canal treatment without unnecessary discomfort. Our dentists will provide you with an anesthetic to ensure your comfort while you receive treatment, and we will provide post-op instructions afterward to help you recover.
