What is a root canal?
Root canal therapy is an effective treatment option that will allow us to save teeth that have significant damage or decay. Within the center of a tooth, there is soft tissue known as dental pulp, which provides sensory, nutritive, protective and formative functions. If this pulp becomes infected or inflamed due to damage or decay, extreme tooth pain can result and may require root canal treatment. Dr. Drgac can often perform root canal therapy in just one or two appointments. Following the therapy, he may place a dental crown over the tooth for additional protection and aesthetics.
