Garden City Dental Saves Teeth with Root Canal Therapy
Each of our teeth contains a long, thin strand of dental pulp – which provides the tooth with nutrients and nerves – that extends down to the toothʼs root. If the pulp becomes infected or injured, the toothʼs nerves die. Often, without endodontic treatment, the tooth dies as well. Root canals are designed to save teeth damaged in this way.
Sealing the Tooth to Save It
The procedure at Garden City Dental to save your tooth with root canal therapy takes only 3 steps in our clinic:
- Drilling into the toothʼs crown and pulp chamber
- Reshaping or removing diseased pulp
- Permanently sealing with an inlay, onlay or crown
