If you are experiencing severe pain in your tooth due to the tooth pulp becoming damaged or infected, you may need root canal therapy. At Perfect Teeth we believe a better understanding of root canal therapy helps lessen patients’ concerns.
A root canal treatment is a procedure that restores a tooth’s damaged or infected pulp, by removing the damaged tissue and restoring the integrity of the tooth structure by filling the void with a strong and durable filling. It is not uncommon for a tooth that has received root canal therapy to become brittle, to counteract this we can restore the strength of your tooth with a dental crown.
Your root canal treatment will most likely be performed over two appointments and you should experience no more discomfort than you would while receiving a regular filling.
