At Cox and Manegold Dentistry, root canal therapy does not have to be such a pain! When a tooth is injured, due to infection or inflammation, root canal therapy means saving a tooth that would otherwise need to be extracted. It is a safe procedure that not only allows your tooth to function normally again, but also keeps your other teeth healthy by maintaining the natural order and shape of your mouth.
Modern endodontic treatment is comparable to having a routine filling and can usually be completed in one appointment. The procedure can be done with minimal discomfort and a short recovery time. Our dentists’ approach to root canal therapy is three-fold:
- Quickly access and efficiently clean the pulp inside the tooth using specialized instruments.
- Rinse the inside of the tooth with antibacterial solution to thoroughly disinfect the area.
- Finally, fill and seal the sterile interior with a biocompatible material.
Once finished with a crown or other restoration, your tooth is as good as new. Root canal therapy gives you your tooth back, preserving your smile and restoring your dental health! We are pleased to offer root canals in West Chester, Ohio, to help you keep your smile healthy and bright for years to come.
