Endodontic (Root Canal) Therapy
Our dentists can help relieve pain and save teeth
Many patients are under the misconception that root canals are painful. However, endodontic therapy actually helps to relieve the pain of a tooth that is damaged due to decay, fracture or infection while retaining the tooth itself.
The nerve inside your tooth can be affected by a very deep cavity, by trauma or by a fracture or crack. This allows bacteria to infect the nerve, requiring root canal treatment. Endodontic therapy is an alternative to a tooth extraction, helping you to save your tooth and therefore your smile.
Dr. Peter Hoffmann and Dr. Whitney Paul perform root canal treatments with predictable results, with little or no discomfort and usually in only one visit.
