Root Canals

Root CanalRoot Canal Therapy
When the nerve of a tooth becomes infected as a result of dental disease or trauma, Dr. Wise may recommend root canal therapy. During a root canal procedure, a small opening is made in the crown of the tooth so that the infected nerve and tissues can be removed and the roots of the teeth can be disinfected and sealed. Following a root canal procedure, the tooth is restored with a crown to protect it from breakage.

Root Canals A root canal is usually the recommended procedure to save a tooth that has become infected, rather than removing it. By having root canal treatment, the tooth can continue to support its role to the body by remaining in position to support the jaw bone structures, bite balance and proper chewing. If the tooth were removed, this functionality would typically have to be replaced with a "false" tooth via a dental bridge or implant, which are more costly procedures.

In some cases, Dr. Wise may recommend that a root canal specialist, or Endodontist, perform the root canal procedure. We then work closely with the Endodontist to coordinate placement of a dental crown following root canal treatment.
