A root canal or endodontic treatment is a procedure that is used to repair a tooth that is badly decaying and as a result the tooth becomes infected. The infection typically causes severe tooth pain or sensitivity.
Dr. Cohen will treat the diseased tissue while being careful to preserve the rest of the tooth. You'll be pain free and back to your normal self in no time!
The best prevention against a root canal is good oral hygiene. Our dentist recommends that you take the below steps to avoid future root canals:
•Brush 2 times a day
•Schedule routine dental cleanings & exams
