Root Canal

A root canal is a dental treatment done under local anesthesia to remove a damaged nerve while saving the tooth. The procedure is done under a sheet of latex called the ;rubber dam; placed around the tooth to isolate it, hence keeping it clean and dry during treatment. The treatment consists of three or four basic steps, but the number of visits will depend on your particular case. Some treatments take 2 visits but many are just a single visit. Occasionally 3 appointments are needed. It all depends on the degree of infection/inflammation and degree of treatment difficulty.

We believe it is more important to do it the very best we can than to meet a specific time criteria.
