A root canal ( endodontics ) is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected.
During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed. Without treatment, the tissue surrounding the tooth will become infected and abscesses may form.
A root canal may require one or more office visits and is a procedure that takes no more than 2 hours.
In our office we provide mechanical endodontic service for root canal treatments, which not only shortens the visits in the office but also gives a more precise and sophisticated touch of the work.
