A root canal is needed when tooth decay infects the root of the tooth. It may be painful, and you might just want to have the tooth pulled! But we want to save your natural tooth if at all possible. Root canal surgery will clear the infection by removing pulp that is in the inner part of the tooth with the nerve endings and blood vessels.
At many dental offices, you’ll need to see an endodontist if you need root canal surgery. But at Dental Health Associates, our dentists can perform your root canal surgery, as well as place the crown to cover the tooth after we’ve cleared the root canal. Because we have exceptional X-ray technology, including panoramic X-rays, we’re able to diagnose, treat, and restore any tooth needing a root canal treatment.
