Root canal is one of the most common and avoidable restorative dentistry procedures. Root canal refers to a procedure used to treat a cavitated tooth if the dental decay or infection has spread into your tooth’s pulp chamber. You can generally avoid an emergency root canal if you maintain oral health and get dental fillings for cavities at an early stage.
At Sapphire Smiles, we believe in providing the least invasive restorative dentistry procedures possible. Our root canal dentist will examine your teeth and cavities to determine if the problem can be treated with dental fillings or onlays. We only provide root canal therapy if the root canal is the only way to save your tooth. Please continue reading to learn more about root canals.
