The Truth About Root Canal Therapy

Model of the inside of a tooth

Root canal therapy is typically used to remove a dental infection that has reached the inner part of a tooth where the delicate nerve is located. This problem can cause the mother of all toothaches, but after numbing a patient, our team can remove the pulp, clean the inside of the tooth, and then fill it to prevent the infection from coming back. All in all, most patients report feeling next to nothing while in the chair, and afterward, their pain is immediately gone. In most cases, the only regret people have is that they didn’t come to see us sooner!
