Root Canals

Root Canals

Look your best!

Teeth are living things, and within them are nerves and blood vessels, commonly called the pulp. Sometimes a tooth can get infected or traumatized. When this happens, the pulp within the tooth can become irreversibly damaged. A tooth with pulp that needs treatment requires root canal treatment. Teeth are living things, and within them are nerves and blood vessels, commonly called the pulp. Sometimes a tooth can get infected or traumatized. When this happens, the pulp within the tooth can become irreversibly damaged. A tooth with pulp that needs treatment requires root canal treatment.

When you undergo a root canal, the inflamed or infected pulp is removed and the inside of the tooth is carefully cleaned and disinfected, then filled and sealed with a rubber-like material called gutta-percha. Afterwards, the tooth is restored with a crown or filling for protection and will continue to function like any other tooth.

Saving the natural tooth with root canal treatment has many advantages:

  • Efficient chewing
  • Normal biting force and sensation
  • Natural appearance
  • Protection of other teeth from excessive wear or strain

 

At The Art of Dentistry and Spa, we use the most advanced rotary endodontics (root canal) equipment and materials to ensure that root canal treatment is pleasant and pain-free, and can usually be done in one or two visits.

Don’t let a damaged tooth keep you from smiling or eating your favorite foods. Make an appointment today. We will help you determine the best course of action and make your experience pleasant and pain-free.
