Are you experiencing tooth pain when chewing? Severe tooth sensitivity to heat or cold? Swelling and tenderness in the nearby gums? These are signs that you may require root canal therapy. Root canal therapy is a treatment used to restore a tooth with damaged or infected pulp. During the procedure, your dentist will remove the infected portion of the pulp, fill it in, and cap the tooth with a crown. Root canal therapy can improve the structure, function, and health of the affected tooth.
Our team at Fairbanks Family Dental Care works hard to ensure that all dental treatment, including root canal therapy, is comfortable and painless. For more information on root canal therapy, we welcome you to contact our dental office today!
