Root canal therapy is an endodontic treatment that can restore a tooth with infected or damaged dental pulp. In the past, a severely infected tooth would require extraction, but thanks to advancements in dental techniques and technology, infected teeth can often be restored with root canal therapy. Root canal therapy involves removing the infected or decayed portion of the dental pulp, filling in the tooth, and sealing the tooth. Depending on your individual dental needs, the tooth may also require a dental crown to improve its function, structure, and appearance. Your caring dentist, Dr. McCaffery, and his dental team will ensure that your dental treatment is painless and comfortable. Root canal therapy can improve the health, function, and beauty of your smile.
