Root canal therapy, often simply called a “root canal”, is a common dental procedure that can save your natural tooth and alleviate pain caused by infection or damage within a tooth’s pulp. At Table Mountain Dental, we prioritize your comfort and oral health. Our dental practice is equipped with the latest technology to ensure your root canal procedure is as painless and effective as possible.

What is Root Canal Therapy?

Root canal therapy involves the removal of the infected or damaged pulp inside your tooth. The pulp contains blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue, which can cause significant pain when inflamed or infected. Here is what you can expect during the procedure:

  • Assessment and X-ray: Dr. Craig Cardon will start with an X-ray to determine the extent of the damage.
  • Anesthesia: Local anesthesia will be administered to ensure you feel no pain during the procedure.
  • Pulp Removal: A small opening is made in the crown of the tooth to remove the infected or damaged pulp.
  • Cleaning and Sealing: After removal, the inside of your tooth will be cleaned and sealed to prevent further infection.
  • Restoration: Finally, the tooth is restored with a filling or crown for protection and to restore its function.

Benefits of Root Canal Therapy
