Single-Visit Root Canals
Root canals may sound scary, but they can ultimately save a tooth from need of extraction! More advanced than ever, root canal treatments are effective and can help preserve your tooth. When the pulp of a tooth becomes infected, it will require a root canal. The pulp is protected by the enamel and dentine layers. Once the infection has passed through these layers, the pulp starts to receive some of the infection. Once this happens, the pulp must be removed to preserve the tooth and also save you from a very bad toothache. We can perform a root canal in just one visit! Your dentist will make sure that you are comfortable and completely numbed before starting treatment. He will then carefully remove all areas of infection, fill the tooth and seal it. If necessary, a dental crown can also be placed the same day. If you are in need of a root canal in Pompano Beach, FL, call our office today!
