Root Canals in Rochester

Root Canal Treatment

Sometimes a tooth's decay can be so advanced that it affects or injures the tooth's pulp (the inner tissues that contains nerves and connective tissue) and the tooth becomes infected.

Root canal treatment is an endodontic treatment that can address this problem. Root canal treatment removes the nerve and the infected tissue from the decayed or infected tooth and it is carefully cleaned and disinfected. This is done to make the affected tooth healthy again.

Myth: Root Canals are Painful

Contrary to popular myth, root canals do not need to be painful or even uncomfortable. If you are experiencing tooth pain, we will evaluate the situation to determine the best course of treatment. If a root canal is needed, it should be done in a timely manner as the infection can spread to and damage surrounding tissue and damage the jaw bone.
