Our Root Canal Services

You may be scared when you hear that you need a root canal, but if you understand what this procedure is and why it is necessary, you'll feel much calmer.

In the interior of your tooth, there are networks of blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue. Dentists call this interior area the pulp. When the pulp is infected or irritated, a root canal is necessary. Since developed teeth don't need the nutrients from the pulp, a root canal removes the pulp and cleans the interior of the tooth. After the tooth is cleaned, the dentist places a dental crown to protect or replace the tooth.

Our Dental Crown Services

Typically, dental crowns are bonded to the tooth with dental cement. Crowns have many benefits. From protecting the health of the tooth to their extreme durability, these restorative caps function just like your natural teeth. In addition, dental crowns can improve the appearance of your teeth.

While the root canal procedure saves your natural tooth, dental crowns protect your teeth, often for a lifetime.
