Root Canal Therapy
Your Choice for Root Canal Therapy on 17th Avenue SW
West 17th Avenue Dental Care performs Root Canal Therapy to save your teeth from extraction. Unfortunately, since your teeth are not able to heal themselves from disease or trauma to the nerve. This makes it a critical dental treatment in order to save teeth that are diseased, infected, fractured, or have become non-vital over time.
At West 17th Avenue Dental Care, our experienced dental team is here to help alleviate your pain caused by infection and we will work to find the best options for saving your tooth. Since the treatment treats disorders of the pulp (the soft tissue inside the tooth), the goal is to restore the tooth to a comfortable and undamaged state that will help save the tooth.
How does Root Canal Therapy Save my Tooth?
The procedure will start by the Dentist cleaning and shaping your root canals. The nerve and pulp are then removed, and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed. The root canals are then filled with a fine rubberlike material and then the root canal is sealed off, leaving the filling material in place. Once the inside of the tooth has been treated, your tooth will be restored to give it a healthy appearance.
At West 17th Avenue Dental Care, our goal is always to save the tooth and alleviate pain. When a tooth has become badly decayed or infected, this can be an effective and safe treatment to do just that. However, there are situations when root canal therapy is not an ideal treatment option, and the need for an extraction is unavoidable.
