Before coming to our office
you may have questions about our policies or the treatments we recommend. We have posted information below to answer some of our most frequently asked questions. We encourage you to contact us with any additional questions you may have.
What is a root canal?
Inside a tooth is soft tissue called the pulp. A root canal is treatment of illness or infection of the pulp.
How does it work?
We remove the inflamed or infected part of the pulp from your affected tooth.
Does it hurt?
Root canals are normally performed with some kind of anesthetic. This procedure should not be more painful than a routine dentist appointment.
How do I know if I need a root canal?
If you have a crack in your tooth, a bad cavity, are having issues with a previous filling, have had trauma, or have an infection, you may need a root canal. Come in and we can help you find out.
Is this a common issue?
You are not alone. More than 15 million teeth receive root canals or endodontic treatment each year. This procedure is very common.
