Root canal therapy is a procedure performed on a tooth that has become damaged or decayed, resulting in an infection of the root. The canal of the tooth is filed to remove bacteria and decayed tooth structure, and then the root is filled with a material that will seal the root and prevent future infections. Any damage to the tooth is then repaired using a filling or a bonding procedure. In many cases, a successful root canal will save a tooth from being lost.

Our root canals can usually be finished within 1 hour with sedation, and the patient will feel as if it were only a minute. Believe us, you will want to sleep through your root canal.
