A root canal is a common solution to treat damaged or diseased teeth, and you can count on Southern Dental Associates when you are in need of this kind of dental care. We treat hundreds of patients each year in need of root canals, saving the tooth, relieving pain and making teeth healthy again.
Inside every tooth lies a soft tissue called pulp. The pulp contains blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue, which support the growth of the root of your tooth during development. When this pulp gets infected, it can be removed because the tooth, if fully developed, can survive it with the nourishment of the tissues around it.
A root canal treatment, also known as endodontic treatment, is a routine procedure that is relatively painless and extremely effective. Depending on the specifics of your dental care, your root canal procedure is typically completed in one or two visits. Southern Dental Associates will have you back to smiling, biting and chewing pain-free in no time.
