Have you been told you need a root canal? Does hearing the word root canal send you over the edge? It seems like we diagnose root canals every day. A root canal is prescribed when a cavity infects the nerves in the middle of the tooth. The infection has to be removed from the tooth and filled with a special filling. Root canals today are as painless as any other filling. Our anesthetics are stronger, and post operatory pain is much lower due to better techniques. Don't be afraid of the word root canal. We can save your natural tooth and get you out of pain. If you've been told you need a root canal, let us show you how easy it truly is!
