What is a
root canal?

Once a tooth’s pulp has been infected, root canal therapy can be a reliable option to alleviate pain. Unlike other treatment options, a root canal procedure can restore the natural tooth and eliminate the infection. During the root canal procedure, Dr. Patel will remove and replace the infected tissue from the interior of the tooth, eliminating the pain and potential need for extraction. Preserving your natural tooth contributes to your health and well-being for years to come!

Are root canals

Though root canal therapy gets a bad reputation, root canals are usually performed over two visits and involve several steps to manage root canal pain. However, before the root canal procedure starts, our team will use local anesthesia to numb the tooth. Once numb, we’ll start the root canal procedure. Our office also offers several dental sedation options that can be used to relieve anxious thoughts and help patients have a more enjoyable root canal procedure.
