Root Canals

Root Canals & Endodontics

If you’re experiencing a toothache or symptoms like pain and swelling, you may have an infection in your tooth and need a root canal. While root canals have a reputation as the standard for something you would rather avoid, these days root canals are routine and usually no more uncomfortable than having a cavity filled.

Dr. Sievert makes a small access hole in the tooth, through which he carefully removes the infection. He will then sterilize and fill the chamber to prevent further infection, and finish the process with a crown to bring the tooth back to full utility and health.

Because saving your natural teeth is the ideal solution whenever possible, root canals are preferable to having teeth extracted. Here are some other advantages to endodontic root canal treatment:

  • Elimination of pain from infected, damaged tissues
  • Ability to chew comfortably and efficiently
  • Protection of neighboring teeth from excessive wear and/or strain
  • Natural appearance
