If you have severe tooth pain while chewing, a tooth that is sensitive to hot or cold, or if your tooth is discolored or darkened, you may consider a root canal. A root canal procedure will remove any infection in the tooth, therefore saving it. Unfortunately, not every tooth can be saved. If the tooth is too severely damaged due to gum disease, decay, or infection, then an extraction of the tooth will be recommended. When a tooth is extracted, you can consider having it replaced with a bridge or a dental implant.
With the use of our latest technology we are able to use an electric handpiece and use rotary files to efficiently clean and shape the root of the tooth.
