Root Canals

stock-15A root canal is a simple treatment that can preserve your natural teeth and save your tooth from requiring extraction. It may surprise you to find out that over 14 million root canals are performed each year, making it one of the most common dental procedures available!

There is a reason why root canals have become so common. Tooth infection happens all of the time, and root canal therapy is a successful way to fix the problem without extracting and replacing the tooth. With modern technology, root canals are more comfortable than ever, and many patients are pleased to discover how simple and painless they can be.

The pulp is a collection of blood vessels and nerves that lies in the center of your tooth. If bacteria leaks through a small chip in the tooth and reaches the pulp, the pulp will become severely damaged.

In a root canal treatment, your qualified Discovery Dental dentist will remove the diseased pulp and thoroughly clean the area. He will fill the root canals and tooth with a rubbery material to prevent future damage and to restore natural strength to the tooth. Success for root canal therapy can be expected in over 90% of cases!

After your root canal, your dentist will restore your tooth with a dental crown or filling.
