Save Your Tooth with a Root Canal
We typically perform a root canal immediately upon detection of an infected tooth because the infection can spread quickly, causing damage to the tooth. Root canal therapy, performed at the right time, will save the tooth and restore your oral health. Dr. Viner can determine whether you are a good candidate for a root canal during your consultation.
If you have persistent tooth pain or notice that your teeth have many cracks, Dr. Timothy Viner may recommend root canal therapy to save the tooth. Many dentists recommend a root canal when the tooth pulp has become infected. In many cases, the only way to save an infected tooth may be with a root canal and the procedure must be completed relatively quickly. Neglecting to treat an infected tooth can lead to tooth loss.
