Root Canals

What Is A Root Canal? 
When a deep cavity or fracture reaches the inner core of your tooth, the pulp, or nerve, inside your tooth can become infected. It’s important to eradicate the infection before it spreads any further, and treatment is usually either root canal therapy or a tooth extraction. During a root canalDr. Satchwell cleans out the infected tissue, fills the canal with a man-made substance, and seals the tooth with a crown.

Oftentimes, root canal therapy can be completed in a single appointment.

With root canal therapy, your tooth and its natural root will remain in place, benefiting your jawbone and total oral function. We simply clean out the diseased canal, fill it with a biologically-inert substance, seal it from further infection, and you're all set. Plus, with modern methods and technology, root canal therapy is now a quicker and more comfortable process than ever.
