Root canals are necessary to save a tooth from severe infection and decay, and help stop unbearable tooth pain. Our restorative dentistLearn more about our Malakoff office performs root canal therapy using anesthetics, so you don’t feel any pain during treatment. We then safely remove any infection in the tooth, clean the area, and seal it.

Some signs you may need a root canal include extreme tooth sensitivity, tooth pain, gum swelling, and unexplained tooth staining. Don’t ignore the symptoms; let us help you restore your health and save your tooth!

Remove Infection

The day of treatment, we use an anesthetic to prevent any pain or discomfort. To complete the root canal, we clean the affected area, remove the infection in the root canal and pulp chamber, and apply any medicine if needed. A complete cleaning eliminates the problem at the root.

After cleaning and drying the tooth, our dentist completes the root canal with a filling. With extensive tooth damage, we also attach a custom crown, which is a tooth cover that protects the treated tooth and offers support for your mouth. Enjoy a pain-free and healthy smile!
