Root Canal Treatment
Through daily use teeth decay, break, and crack. When this happens, the best treatment option may be a root canal. Root canal therapy saves the remaining healthy structure of the natural tooth instead of extracting it and completely replacing it with a dental implant. The tooth will appear and function the same way it did before treatment. It may even last the rest of your life without further treatment.
- Essentially painless process
- Short treatment process
- Avoid dental implants by keeping your natural tooth
- Maintain normal biting sensation and mouth structure
Additional Information: Root canal therapy gently removes the nerve tissue of a tooth and seals the exposed canals with a rubber like material. Following root canal therapy, the tooth will maintain normal biting power and sensation but will not be able to feel temperature or pain with the absence of the nerve.
