Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic therapy, is probably the most objectionable of all dental procedures, but the reputation of pain typically associated with having a root canal is really not deserved.  This procedure is uncomplicated and allows our patients to retain their natural teeth as long as possible.

Root canal treatment is performed when the nerve of a tooth is too diseased to be saved and must be removed.  This means replacing the diseased or dead nerve with a substance that will help preserve the function of the tooth.  Modern techniques have made this tooth saving procedure much more effortless and painless and here at our Somers Dental Care, New Canaan Dentistry or Ridgefield Dental Arts offices we put into practice those techniques.
