A root canal, or pulpectomy, is a treatment for an infection in the soft inner tissue of a tooth. If left untreated, the infection can affect the health of the jaw and other tissues surrounding the tooth.
The root canal procedure:
- Preserves your dental and oral health
- Improves the appearance of teeth darkened by infection
- Is a preventative measure to help you avoid costly restorations to replace a tooth lost to decay and infection
The potential pain of a root canal procedure concerns many people, but at Modern Family Dental, we provide modern root canal therapy that is usually painless and no more uncomfortable than having a filling placed.
