Root Canal Durham

Root Canal Therapy

When the life of a tooth is in jeopardy, Croasdaile Dental Arts is able to effectively treat the root canal. Our Durham dentists provide comfortable root canal therapy that preserves the health of an infected tooth, vastly reducing its risk of being lost.

A root canal in Durham may be needed when the pulp of the tooth becomes infected due to decay or injury. During treatment, the infected tissue is removed and the deep canals of the tooth are cleaned, sterilized and filled with a rubber-like material. Once the process is complete, the tooth will be capped with a natural-looking dental crown. This will protect the tooth from future infection, restoring its strength and function.

Too often, root canal therapy is thought to be a painful procedure that many dread. In our dental office, this couldn’t be farther from the truth. Our dental team is skilled in all of the latest techniques that make root canal therapy virtually pain-free, making sure that you are completely numb before treatment begins. If you are especially nervous about treatment, sedation dentistry may be an option. Beyond anything, the discomfort of an abscessed or infected tooth far outweighs the treatment process itself.

At Croasdaile Dental Arts, our goal is to preserve and protect the health and longevity of your natural smile using the most advanced, yet conservative dentistry possible. Our comfortable root canal therapy saves Durham, NC smiles by preserving the health and lives of infected teeth. Schedule your appointment with our talented dentists today.
