Root canal treatment, commonly referred to as a root canal, is a crucial endodontic procedure recommended when the tooth pulp and nerves are infected or damaged. This can occur due to injury or deep decay that penetrates beyond the outer enamel layer. If left untreated, this infection can lead to the death of the tooth, ultimately necessitating its extraction. However, root canal therapy offers an alternative, saving the tooth and preserving your oral health.
Here at Avent Ferry Family Dentistry, we provide nonsurgical root canals to meticulously remove the infected and damaged tissues from within your tooth. The tooth is then thoroughly cleaned before being filled with a special medicated material. Finally, our dentist will provide a dental crown to restore the tooth’s original shape and structure and prevent future damage from occurring. Most root canals can be completed in just one or two visits to our office.
Contrary to its reputation, root canal treatment is often relatively painless thanks to advanced techniques, specialized tools and effective anesthesia. Our dedicated dentist and team also take care to ensure you feel as comfortable as possible during your procedure. We are committed to providing you with quality care and to making your time with us as pleasant as possible.
