Do You Need a Root Canal in Fairfield West?
Many residents of Fairfield West have required root canal therapy at some point in their life. A root canal is a procedure to attempt to save a severely damaged or significantly infected tooth. Our teeth contain pulp and nerves inside an area often referred to as the root canal. When that pulp or nerve becomes infected, it causes significant pain or discomfort. Root canal therapy commonly referred to as a “root canal” involves drilling a hole or holes in the tooth and removing the pulp and nerves from the canal. After the canal is cleaned and filled, a cap or crown is often applied.
Many years ago a root canal in Fairfield West, as well as in most of the rest of the world, was a somewhat long, uncomfortable and sometimes painful process. There have been significant advancements in root canal technology and methodology making the experience far less uncomfortable and less time consuming. If you or a member of your family needs a root canal in Fairfield West, contact our office for an appointment, and we will explain the options and take the fear out of root canal therapy.
