Root Canals: The Facts
Our office provides root canal treatments for anterior and bicuspid teeth.
A typical root canal procedure takes approximately 60 minutes.
What is a Root Canal?
A root canal is a treatment used to repair and save a decayed or infected tooth. A root canal is used to remove a tooth's nerve tissue (pulp) when it is damaged and infected.
Do I need a Root Canal?
You may need a root canal if you have the following symptoms:
- Severe toothache pain
- Prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures
- Tooth is discolored or darkened
- Swollen, tender gums
- There is a "pimple" on your gums
Are there other options to a Root Canal?
A root canal is used to save your natural tooth. In most cases, the only other option is to extract the tooth.
