Relieve pain and prevent tooth extraction with our expert root canal therapy.
If your tooth has become infected or badly damaged, then you may have been told to seek out root canal therapy. We understand that hearing the words “root canal” makes many people feel anxious, but with modern advances and talented caring dentists like ours at Goodall Family Dentistry, you will find that root canal therapy does not need to be something to dread.
First it is important to understand what root canal therapy is for and how it works. The inside of your tooth is referred to as the pulp chamber and the root canal. These areas are full of nerves, blood vessels, connective tissues, and specialized cells that are known collectively as dental pulp. When that pulp becomes infected because of a fracture to the tooth or severe decay, it can cause a great deal of pain and can’t be fixed with a simple filling. During the root canal therapy, one of our highly skilled dentists will clean the area in and around the tooth, remove the infected pulp and replace it with a safe rubber filling material. You may also need a crown over the tooth.
When you come to us at Goodall Family Dentistry, we will go to every effort to help you be as comfortable as possible during your root canal therapy. This process is a very safe and highly successful option for treating serious infection, avoiding tooth extraction, and allowing you to keep your same beautiful smile. And here at Goodall Family Dentistry, our excellent customer care and dependable dental treatment will give you plenty to smile about.
