Root Canal Therapy
Root canals have gotten a terrible reputation over the years. The treatment that was once associated with pain has become much gentler and more predictable with technological advancements over the years. It is usually the least traumatic and most conservative way to treat infected teeth or irreversible nerve pain.
During a root canal, the nerve and any underlying infection is removed from the tooth. While there may be some post-operative soreness, the nerve pain that most patients come in with resolves almost immediately after treatment.
