What Is Root Canal Therapy?

Root canals are one of the most common dental procedures, reportedly performed well over 14 million times each year in the United States. This treatment is designed to help save your natural teeth and keep you from needing dental implants or bridges.

Root canal therapy is a dental procedure to remove the pulp (the living tissue inside the tooth), nerves, bacteria, and any decay from the infected tooth. The chamber is carefully cleaned and then filled with medication and tooth colored composite resin.

This process is designed to restore the previously damaged tooth to its full function and usually lasts a lifetime. Once your root canal therapy is completed, our dental team will place a temporary crown to protect your tooth until your permanent dental crown is placed at your second visit to our Southlake office.
