Root-Canal Therapy

What Is Root-Canal Therapy?

Root Canal Therapy, is a treatment sequence for the infected pulp of a tooth which results in the elimination of infection. For many patients, root canal therapy is the only treatment their injured tooth needs to fully regain its integrity. We understand that this is one of the most feared procedures. Our team would like to put you at ease to know that it is actually a pain-free, quick and relatively comfortable procedure that is usually completed in only one visit. If left untreated, the tooth can get abcessed and cause swelling and bone loss.

Dr. Larson's Take:

In some situations, though, the tooth in question may contain small, well-hidden areas, fractures, or canals that simply don’t show up on regular X-rays and thus go untreated, resulting in further discomfort for the patient and an additional expense to treat properly. Investing in 3-D technology allows our doctors to see these deviations and hard to find problems which provide you immediate relief from pain and give back the healthy, complete smile you’ve been sorely missing.
