Our goal is to attempt to deal with potential issues proactively. If it’s too late, and significant damage has already been done, we’ll try to save the affected tooth. This could be through filling in the cavity, or, if the problem is far advanced, performing a root canal.

What is a Root Canal?

This is a procedure that gets a bad rap. It’s true that initially, root canal procedures can be painful. If you choose an inexperienced dentist, that’s more likely to hold true.

All of our dentists are highly skilled and experienced. We know exactly how to numb your gums to ensure you feel at the most minor discomfort. After your dentist numbs the area, they’ll drill into the tooth until they reach the pulp. The pulp is then removed entirely, and the area filled in. If necessary, a cap may be added afterward.

This simple procedure can help make your tooth stronger than it was before so that it can stay in place, problem-free for a good many years.
