Root canals are extremely common, in fact they are the most frequently occurring service provided by an Endodontist. Most traditional root canals take two visits to complete treatment.

Using these advanced tools, these procedures are now more comfortable, efficient, and effective. In just one visit to our office, you’ll be free of pain with a natural, fully functional tooth.
An infected tooth occurs when the pulp inside a tooth becomes irritated or inflamed from a crack, decay, chip, or repeated dental procedures. As a result, there is inflammation and pain. At this stage most individuals visit their dentists, only to learn that they’ll need a root canal. The good news is that today, root canals have a 97 percent success rate, consequently avoiding a more invasive tooth extraction.
