Root Canal Therapy

While root canals get a bad rap as being painful and difficult, they actually aren’t. Root canal therapy is safe, relatively painless, and can actually save your tooth and smile.

Schedule an Appointment

Root canal therapy repairs and saves a tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected. During the procedure, the nerve and pulp of the affected tooth are removed and the inside is cleaned and sealed.

After treatment, a temporary filling might be placed to protect your tooth until the full restoration is complete.
