Root Canals (Endodontics)

Root Canal Therapy for Winston-Salem

An infected tooth pulp, which contains the nerves and tissues of the tooth, is a serious risk to your smile and overall health. It is critical to remove the tooth or remove the damaged portion of the tooth with root canal therapy.

When Do I Need Endodontics?

If you have a tooth infection and need a root canal procedure, the treatment will begin with a digital x-ray of the tooth. If the tooth is infected, but not too far gone, we can save the natural tooth with root canal therapy.

  1. Our dentist will apply a localized anesthetic. We will offer patient comforts and sedation options. It is imperative for us that you have a pleasant and painless experience.
  2. Once the area is fully numb and the patient is relaxed, treatment begins. We will form a small access hole in the tooth to remove the infected bacteria and pulp.
  3. We will thoroughly clean the affected area and root canals.
  4. The tooth will be sealed with a rubbery biocompatible material to prevent future problems.
  5. Typically, a crown or filling is placed to further protect the tooth.
