What Is A Root Canal Treatment?
You've probably read horror stories online. We're here to tell you, thankfully, that they're not true. A root canal is a simple procedure that allows us to go in and save a tooth that has become infected or unhealthy, removing the bacteria and dieing tissue from the inside of the tooth. With our advanced equipment and procedural practices, the operation is relatively short, pain-free, and incredibly safe. Our goal is to be there with you every step of the way, keeping you informed about what needs to be done, your options, and putting you at the center of everything that we do.

Doctor Larson's Take:
Root Canals In 4-Steps:
- Step 1:
- We'll use a micro needle to painlessly administer an anesthesia that we have discussed in advance to make sure that your tooth is numb.
- Step 2:
- Using micro tools, we will access the inside of the tooth by creating a tiny opening at the top of the tooth. We will then use a small file to slowly clear away the infection, stopping when we've cleaned out only the infected areas.
- Step 3:
- Once cleaned of any infectious parts, we'll seal the chamber with gutta percha or a similar material, which is a rubber-like material. We'll make sure the tooth is closed up at this point with a temporary filling.
- Step 4:
- We will revisit with you after a few weeks and place your permanent crown over the filling.
