Root Canal Therapy

Have you noticed any of the following symptoms?

  • Severe tooth pain, especially when you bite down or chew
  • A persistent or recurring pimple on the nearby gums
  • Tenderness and swelling in the nearby gums
  • Extreme, prolonged tooth sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures
  • A darkening or discoloration of the tooth

If so, you may be suffering from an infected tooth. When tooth decay or damage reaches the dental pulp, which is the innermost layer of the tooth, the pulp may become diseased and infected. This often results in severe tooth pain, and without proper treatment, may eventually cause the death of the tooth and necessitate tooth extraction. If a tooth is seriously infected or damaged, our dentist may recommend root canal therapy. This treatment allows us to treat the infection, return the tooth to good health, and prevent the infection from spreading to healthy parts of your smile.

During root canal therapy, Dr. Chhabra removes the infected pulp and tissues, and then carefully cleans the tooth. We fill the tooth and cap it with a restoration, such as a crown, to restore its structure and to protect it. You can rest assured that our team will make your root canal therapy treatment as comfortable as possible.
