Root Canal Therapy

We understand the importance of maintaining optimal oral health and offer comprehensive root canal therapy to address issues affecting the innermost part of your teeth. Our dedicated team specializes in providing personalized care to alleviate discomfort and preserve your natural teeth. 

Understanding Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy is a specialized dental procedure aimed at treating infections or damage to the pulp (innermost part) of a tooth. This can be necessary when the pulp becomes inflamed or infected due to deep cavities, fractures or trauma. Our skilled dentist and team utilize advanced techniques to ensure a comfortable and effective root canal experience. Signs you may need a root canal include:

  • Swelling
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold
  • A persistent toothache
  • A pimple on your gums

We will conduct a thorough examination and diagnostics to determine the most suitable course of action for your specific case.


The Root Canal Procedure

During the root canal procedure, our experienced dentist will carefully remove the infected or damaged pulp, clean the interior of the tooth and seal it to prevent further infection. The process is designed to relieve pain, save your natural tooth and promote overall oral health.

Following root canal therapy, we will provide guidance on post-treatment care to ensure a smooth recovery. This may include instructions on oral hygiene, dietary recommendations and follow-up appointments to monitor your progress.
