At Bachtell Dentistry, we are proud to offer root canals when needed to our patients.
We perform root canals on decayed teeth that can’t be fixed with fillings alone. We also do them on infected teeth or teeth that have suffered blunt trauma.
During a root canal, we remove the dead or infected nerve from your tooth. We then seal off the remaining canal space to help prevent getting an infection or abscess. If an abcess is already present it will be drained to remove the infection.
If you decide not to have a root canal, your tooth decay or the infection will continue to worsen. It can become more painful and destroy surrounding gum and bone.
If you have any questions about root canals, don’t hesitate to contact us today at (318) 701-8240.
