Intense discomfort can result from an infected tooth, but root canal treatment is an excellent way to relieve the pain and prevent the need for extracting or pulling your tooth. There is nothing better in comparison to a natural tooth, so it is best to save a tooth if it is savable.

Although a tooth may not be salvageable in every case, root canal therapy can often help. The procedure may sound unpleasant, but we make certain to utilize appropriate anesthetic technique to keep you comfortable at all times.

In brief, during a root canal procedure, infected nerve from the tooth’s interior is removed. Once the tooth’s interior is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected, dental filler is placed to take over the space where nerve was present. The tooth then usually receives a crown.

Root canal therapy can allow you to keep your tooth, avoid an extraction, and resolve pain. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with our office now at (360) 332-8737 for an evaluation.
