When it comes to oral healthcare, we are well prepared to provide treatment for a broad range of dental issues, whether you’re in need of a restorative procedure or a root canal therapy.

Persistent oral pain is commonly the result of issues occurring deep inside a tooth, at the inner, nerve level. Because the central region of the tooth is its vital area, it’s of the utmost importance that you see a dentist when sensitivity or acute discomfort develops. Although the enamel of your teeth is the hardest substance in the human body, there are a variety of circumstances that can lead to the delicate center of a tooth becoming compromised. Dental decay, commonly known by its result—cavities—can continue burrowing into a tooth if left untreated. With deep decay, the vital tissue of the tooth can become exposed to bacteria and subsequent infection. 

With a root canal, a dental infection can be treated, the discomfort of a toothache alleviated and subsequent damage to your oral health prevented. Throughout the course of your root canal procedure our dentist and staff will keep you informed and at ease, addressing any anxiety or concerns that may arise during treatment. Following the procedure, we may recommend placing a dental crown over your treated tooth, to help strengthen and protect it, and to restore its function and appearance. A tooth that has been treated with a root canal can remain healthy and functional throughout your life.
