South Dental has a specialist in Endodontics that specializes in the meticulous occupation of treating the tooth’s canals or nerves. The root canal therapy consists of opening tooth and extracting canals from the root to tip, and then it is refilled. If needed a core build up is done after and then the tooth is restored with a porcelain crown.
Root canal therapy is done 99% of the time in one visit without any pain, since that area will be under lidocaine or local anesthesia. We administer x-rays on that tooth before and after the root canal is done in order to ensure positive results.
