Protect Your Oral Health And Smile
When Dr. Hobbs or Dr. Wyatt diagnoses you with a tooth infection, you may require root canal treatment. We will quickly restore your tooth and overall comfort with root canal therapy.
What Is A Root Canal?
A root canal is a restorative procedure that we use to treat an infected tooth. Your infection will likely occur as the result of an infected pulp, which exists deep within your teeth, providing them with nutrients and oxygen. To save the life of your tooth and protect your oral health, we need to remove the pulp and restore your tooth’s structure.
Following the removal of infected and decayed tissue, we will fill the clean, open space in your tooth with a filling. We will then finish by cementing a beautiful dental crown over your tooth.
What Are The Advantages Of A Root Canal?
Root canal treatment provides patients with a host of advantages, including:
- Ending discomfort
- Treatment removes the infected pulp and seals the tooth, preventing future infections
- Root canal treatment saves your tooth from removal
- Root canal treatment prevents the spread of infection throughout your mouth
- Root canal treatment may prevent your tooth from developing an abscess
Do I Qualify For Root Canal Therapy?
If you have an infected tooth, you qualify for a root canal treatment. For a more relaxed procedure or if you feel anxious about the procedure, speak with Dr. Hobbs or Dr. Wyatt about your sedation options.
