The term Root Canal may make you cringe. But our Endodontist has materials and equipment designed to make your treatment more comfortable and successful. A small sheet of plastic or rubber called a dental dam is used to isolate the tooth during treatment, protecting the rest of your mouth. Digital radiographs and 3-D imaging allows the endodontists to take detailed pictures of the tooth anatomy to better see the root canals and any related infections. The office is also equipped with dental operating microscopes to better see inside the root canals to thoroughly treat them.
A root canal is very similar to a routine filling and can usually be completed in one or two appointments, depending on the condition of your tooth and your personal circumstances. Getting a root canal is relatively painless and extremely effective.
