Root Canal Therapy

Terrible toothaches can be resolved with root canals to help get you out of pain quickly.

Root canal therapy is a treatment to repair and save a badly damaged or infected tooth – instead of removing it.

This procedure is often performed with a local anesthetic in one visit. It helps alleviate painful symptoms due to a large cavity or broken tooth from trauma.

Root Canal Therapy is a long-lasting solution

This treatment protects the tooth from further pain and eliminates any infection. Since the tooth is often very weak, it is covered with a crown for strength.

Our easy, same-day crown process: A crown is long-lasting porcelain that covers the entire tooth. It is designed to look and function like your original tooth. It is used to protect and restore a tooth that has been damaged by decay or trauma. It is also used following a root canal. Learn more ›
