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.
The staff and atmosphere were wonderful! I made my appointment without my complete insurance information and Heather was able to take care of it. Dr. Page and Jill took care of all my questions and concerns. Jenna cleaned my teeth up really nice. My first experience with the office and I can honestly say I found my new home. I would recommend this office to anyone!
