Root Canal An Overview
A root canal is performed to avoid the need for a tooth extraction. The goal of a root canal is to remove diseased tissue from the pulp of the affected tooth. We offer root canal treatment in the comfort of our Montclair Plaza Dental Group office.
What Is A Root Canal?
When the tooth is infected, your dentist must remove the diseased portion of the tooth in hopes to save it from extraction. A root canal is recommended for a severely decayed, infected, or damaged tooth. When harmful bacteria enter the pulp of the tooth, the structure of the tooth is compromised. The goal is to remove the infection and stop the spread of bacteria. Root canals are one of the most commonly performed procedures in our Montclair dental office. We take the necessary steps to ensure our patients are comfortable, relaxed, and safe during their procedure.
