Root Canal Therapy

While many people dread the thought of root canal therapy, we would like to reassure you that the treatment works to relieve you of tooth pain rather than cause it. The virtually painless procedure is indicated if the tooth pulp inside the root canal becomes inflamed or infected due to severe tooth decay, chipped or cracked teeth, or an injury. It can also save a dead tooth, which is one that no longer has any blood flow to it.

If left untreated, pulp infection and inflammation can cause severe pain and may result in an abscessed tooth. It may even lead to tooth loss or the need for extraction.

During your root canal treatment, Dr. Watson will remove the affected pulp tissue, and clean, shape, sterilize, and seal the area. You will likely need a dental crown to strengthen and protect the tooth from breakage. With proper care including regular brushing, flossing, and checkups, your restored tooth can last a lifetime!
