Dental Root Canal Treatment
Root Canal Therapy Prevents Extraction
In the past, a tooth with damaged or infected roots was extracted. Today, it is recognized that saving a tooth is important to avoid other dental problems. Dr. Miller and Dr. Squires are experienced in the latest treatment techniques that now make this procedure more manageable for patients. Together with the use of modern anesthetics, there is little discomfort.
During the procedure the interior pulp of the tooth is removed and repacked with a special filling material. Root canals keep the damaged tooth intact and return it to full functionality for chewing.
