When a tooth is significantly decayed, infected, or damaged, root canal therapy may be a good option for restoring the tooth and avoiding tooth extraction. Also known as endodontic treatment, root canal therapy can prevent infection from spreading to other parts of your mouth and can restore the function, health, and beauty of your smile. Your Maineville, Ohio dentists, Dr. Romick and Dr. Goulden, may recommend root canal therapy to treat teeth suffering from:
- Severe injury or trauma
- Infection or decay in the pulp of the tooth
- An abscess
During root canal therapy, the infected or decayed portion of the tooth and tooth pulp will be removed and the tooth will be filled in. To complete the root canal therapy and to protect the tooth, the tooth will be capped with a dental crown. In just one or two visits to Riversbend Dental, your root canal therapy can be completed and your mouth restored to full function and health. Our gentle and friendly dentists and dental team ensure that root canal therapy and all of our other treatments are completely painless and comfortable for our patients.
