Tooth Sensitivity? Call us now!

A root canal is nothing to be afraid of. Our professional staff is well-versed in performing root canal treatments in a variety of cases. Dentists may recommend a root canal procedure when there is inflammation or infection in the roots of a tooth. This infection may be the result of an injury or of a severe, untreated cavity.

The dentist will remove the infection by carefully removing the infected pulp and disinfecting the root canal of the tooth. Then, a seal will be inserted to fill the space. During this appointment, the dentist will use a temporary filling, while waiting for the permanent crown to come in.

A few weeks later, the dentist will finish the treatment by placing a permanent crown on top of the tooth.

Porcelain Crowns

Protect and keep badly decayed or fractured teeth while maintaining a beautiful smile. Made to perfectly match the shape and shade of your other teeth, they’re durable, strong, and undetectable.

Crowns should be placed before the tooth is so decayed that it may fracture. This can often help prevent the expense of root canal therapy in the future. If a tooth is too damaged to have a crown applied, a porcelain bridge may be a good alternative.
