When a Root Canal is NecessaryIt is now well known how important it is to save a tooth from extraction, if at all possible, to avoid other dental problems. Our doctors are very experienced in the latest techniques of root canal therapy and provide anesthetics that make the procedure manageable for patients. When the roots of a tooth have decayed or been damaged, this treatment will remove the roots and the interior pulp of the tooth. The tooth will be secured in the mouth with a special filling material that keeps the tooth intact. This procedure will return the tooth to full functionality and keep a full set of teeth in the dental arch.
