Root canal therapy is done to save teeth that are severely broken, decayed, or abscessed. At Grace Dental, we offer less-invasive and modern root canal treatment.
What is Root Canal Therapy?
Root canals or endodontic treatments involve the removal of damaged pulp from the tooth. This treatment can offer you relief from pain, infection, and inflammation. Through this endodontic procedure, you can save that badly decayed or injured tooth, giving it a new life again.
What is involved in the Root Canal Therapy procedure?
When you visit our dental office Dr. Bishay will examine your mouth, with the help of x-rays, to check the severity of tooth infection. Before beginning the treatment, we will give you a local anesthetic to avoid any pain during the process. Our skilled dentist will start the process by creating a small opening in your tooth’s crown. We will then remove the decayed and infected pulp from the inside of the tooth. After that, our dentist will fill, seal and place a crown over it. This will help avoid any future infections and give your tooth a natural look.
