Root canal treatment is required when the pulp of your tooth becomes inflamed or infected. The inflammation or infection can be caused by a variety of factors: deep decay, repeated dental procedures on the tooth, a crack or a chip in the tooth, or a blow to a tooth. In our office we use the latest technology. A root canal will be done by using our new rotary Nickel Titanium instruments and a computer that accurately measures the length of the canal. With the use of the new technology this will not only shorten your appointment but will hopefully make it a more pleasurable experience.
