If you are in need of an endodontic treatment such as root canals, we can help. Root canal treatments are designed to save damaged teeth that otherwise may need to be extracted. Root canals remove the damaged pulp of a tooth to ensure a tooth has a chance for future functionality.

Pulp damage normally occurs due to an oral accident or tooth decay. Oral accidents include blunt trauma and severe blows to your face, head, and neck area. In some situations, damage can occur that is not immediately visible. If there is any cracks or splits in your tooth enamel, pulp damage can eventually arise. Furthermore, if a cavity has formed in a tooth, bacteria can enter your tooth through the hole and damage your pulp.

Previous dental procedures can wear down teeth. In certain situations, such as with dental crowns or dental veneers, a small amount of tooth enamel must be removed. Multiple treatments may leave you liable for pulp damage due to a vulnerable tooth. Fortunately, no matter how much wear and tear your teeth may have sustained, or how badly damaged your teeth are, our team will do everything we can to save your smile.
