Dr. Kevin Wolf and Dr. Larry Osborne provide root canal treatment to help you regain your oral health and smile. This endodontic treatment is often the only alternative to a tooth extraction and can save your natural teeth as well as prevent you from needed more extensive care.

When Is A Root Canal Recommended?

Root canals are typically recommended to treat teeth that are damaged, infected or decayed. If injury or decay reaches deep into the tooth, past the outer layer of enamel and into the pulp or nerves of the tooth, root canals are often the best solution to resolve the issue. If left untreated, this type of tooth damage can cause significant discomfort and may even lead to the death of the tooth, making an extraction and a tooth replacement necessary. Roto canals help you avoid this, removing the damaged tooth tissue so you can regain your oral health and continue to enjoy the use of your natural teeth.

The Root Canal Procedure

Root canals have a reputation for being painful. However, the truth is that root canal treatments can be completed with only minimal discomfort thanks to advances in treatment techniques and anesthesia. Our dentists and team take your comfort seriously, and we will make every effort to ensure your comfort during your procedure.

When you receive a root canal, our dentists will remove the infected and injured tissues from within the tooth. The tooth will then be cleaned and filled with a medicated material to help prevent reinfection and encourage healing. Finally, we will cap the tooth with a dental crown to restore its original shape, strength and appearance. In most cases, this entire process can be completed in just one or two visits to Wolf and Osborne LTD.
