Our team is here to put your mind at ease and perform gentle root canal therapy to alleviate your tooth pain and get your oral health back on track.


The Root Canal Procedure

Root canal therapy is the answer to your problems when you’re suffering from a severely infected tooth. It helps to relieve pain, return functionality to your smile, and prevent future infection. We achieve this by making a tiny hole in the infected tooth so we can carefully remove the pulp. Once we remove the damaged pulp, we will seal off the hole and place a dental crown over your tooth. The procedure itself can last around 20 minutes to an hour. Many patients report nearly instantaneous relief after the procedure.
