Non Surgical Root Canal

What is a root canal?

Root Canal is a non-surgical procedure performed to save natural teeth that have sustained irreversible nerve damage due to decay or trauma.  

Root Canal Therapy is performed to alleviate uncontrolled pain, remove the diseased nerve, and restore tooth function. 

How is a root canal performed?

If you experience any of these symptoms, your dentist will most likely recommend non-surgical treatment to eliminate the diseased pulp. This injured pulp is removed and the root canal system is thoroughly cleaned and sealed. This therapy usually involves local anesthesia and may be completed in one or more visits depending on the treatment required. Success for this type of treatment occurs in about 90% of cases. If your tooth is not amenable to endodontic treatment or the chance of success is unfavorable, you will be informed at the time of consultation or when a complication becomes evident during or after treatment. We use local anesthesia to eliminate discomfort.
