Each of your teeth has soft tissue beneath the dentin. When that soft tissue becomes inflamed or infected, it can cause considerable pain. A root canal removes the inflamed and infected material, disinfects the tooth and seals the dentin to prevent future infection.
How can a Root Canal save your tooth?
During root canal treatment, 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. After restoration, the tooth continues to function like any other tooth.
The many advantages of having a Root Canal treatment:
I would highly recommend Dr. Collins and her staff! They are all super friendly and personable! I did Invisalign through them and was always able to get in and out in a timely manner! I’m very pleased with my results!
Great doctor and staffs. Best dentist in town.
Always considerate and timely. Can always count on a follow up phone call to make sure everything went ok. Highly recommend.
