Root Canal Treatment, also known as endodontics, involves removing bacteria and other damaged tissues from inside the tooth. When bacteria invade a tooth through fractures or decay, it becomes infected. Casey Family Dental offers root canal treatment to relieve your pain and save the natural tooth.

Root Canal Treatment Procedure
During a Root Canal Treatment, we carefully remove the pulp from inside the tooth, clean and disinfects it, then reshape the walls of the root canals before filling the space. Root canal treatment is extremely effective. This treatment helps you maintain your smile, eat the foods you love and limits the need for ongoing dental work. After the procedure, you will need a dental crown placed on the tooth to protect and restore it to full function.
