People often talk of a root canal as the most dreaded type of dental treatment. In most cases having a root canal is very similar to having a filling or crown done. Root canal therapy is necessary for many different reasons. Most cases involve the nerve of the tooth being injured. Symptoms of an injured nerve often include pain upon biting or to hot and cold. To relieve tooth pain the nerve of the tooth is removed and the root canals are cleaned, disinfected, and then sealed with a material which will allows the tooth to be stable and pain free. At Allen Dental rotary endodontics is used allowing us to be more precise, efficient, and predictable with every root canal done.
