Root canal therapy is recommended when a tooth is severely damaged or decayed and there is no other treatment alternative. With today’s modern dental technology, root canal therapies are painless. A root canal is a dental procedure targeted specifically at the pulp of the tooth. When a tooth is severely damaged or decayed, bacteria can get down into the pulp and roots of the tooth, causing infection. Root canal therapy cleans out the tooth canals, removing the pulp, nerves and other tissues, as well as any infection. The hollowed-out area is then thoroughly cleaned, filled with a biocompatible material and sealed. Finally, a crown is placed over the entire tooth to protect the fragile tooth from further damage.

My teeth were okay when I was a child but they got worse as I got older. We eventually decided that porcelain veneers could be a good idea. It was a big undertaking that took months to complete, but I was comfortable through the whole thing. I’ve had only positive experiences with the entire staff; they made everything so smooth and cared so much about my well-being. Because of the people involved, not only do I not dread coming to the dentist, I enjoy it. I would absolutely recommend doctors Avery, Meadows and Patel to anyone. You won’t regret it. These people are the best in the business.
