Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is typically performed on a tooth that is severely infected, generally due to decay or tooth fractures/cracks. The infected tissue is removed therefore alleviating any pain and saves the tooth. Endodontics is the branch of dentistry that deals with treating these types of infected teeth. An endodontist is a dentist who specializes in root canal and other endodontic treatments. Our office works closely with Dr Uhle, and Dr Niemiec, an endodontic practice whom we refer our patients to for this type of special dental treatment.
