Root Canal Treatment

When tooth decay or trauma impact the nerve inside a tooth, root canal treatment can save a tooth and alleviate pain. After the area is comfortably numb, Dr. Conover makes a small access hole in the top of the tooth and gently removes the pulp tissue inside the tooth with tiny instruments called files and irrigating solutions. For most teeth that require root canal treatment, a crown is also recommended. Some patients have anxiety about root canal treatment. We offer several options for sedation to make the experience as pleasant as possible.
