When the tooth’s inner nerve (pulp) becomes decayed or infected, it may require root canal therapy. Root canal therapy is an effective treatment that allows our dentists to restore the function and health of damaged teeth. Root canal therapy typically takes one or two appointments at Red Oaks Dental. In most cases, our dentists will recommend root canal therapy instead of an extraction because root canal therapy gives us the opportunity to save the tooth and prevent the need for a future tooth replacement. Following the therapy, our dentists will provide the appropriate restoration over the tooth for additional protection and increased aesthetics. To learn more about root canal therapy or our other affordable treatment options, we invite you to contact Red Oaks Dental.
