Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment is also known as endodontics. Root canal treatment is required when tooth decay has broken through the outer enamel and infected the heart of the tooth.

The goal of Drs. Janower and Monkman is to try and save your natural teeth. The reason for this is because removing natural teeth leaves gaps which then cause the other teeth to compensate. It can then affect your bite and cause a host of other affiliated problems.

But what happens when a tooth has become infected right in the center? Essentially, this means that the nerves at the heart of the tooth are slowing dying. Not to mention the fact that you will probably also be experiencing quite a bit of pain.

Under these circumstances, most patients want a quick fix – an extraction. While extraction may remove the offending tooth, it is not the best option in the long term. We prefer to perform root canal therapy instead. Most often root canals are significantly less painful than extractions and provide a better long term prognosis for overall oral health.
