Saving Teeth with Root Canal Treatment
Your teeth are meant to last a lifetime. However, in some cases, root canal treatment may be needed to repair a tooth that is damaged, decayed or infected, and would otherwise need to be removed. During a root canal procedure the nerve and pulp are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed. Root canal treatment relieves the pain associated with the infected or damaged tooth.
With today’s modern dental procedures and Dr. Pilecki’s caring and compassionate approach, root canal treatment can be virtually painless and extremely effective. You’ll be back to smiling, biting and chewing with ease in no time.
