Endodontics (Root Canal)

A root canal is used to treat a tooth when it becomes damaged or diseased. This soft core is called the dental pulp and contains the nerves, blood vessels and other connective tissue that extends from the crown of the tooth to the root.   The diseased or damaged dental pulp is removed, the pulp chamber and the canal(s) of the tooth are cleaned out and sealed with a temporary filling until a crown can be permanently placed on the tooth. If you are experiencing any pain or swelling or have cracked or damaged a tooth please contact our office at 336-570-3882 so that we can evaluate your condition and proceed with treatment.
