Root canal therapy, often simply referred to as a root canal, is a specialized procedure within the field of endodontics aimed at saving a tooth that has suffered from deep decay or injury, affecting its pulp and nerves. Such damage is usually the result of cavities that penetrate beyond the tooth’s outer enamel or from physical trauma. If not addressed, the affected tooth might ultimately lose its viability, leading to the necessity for removal. To prevent this and preserve the tooth, Dr. Anil Dwivedi will meticulously remove the compromised tissue from the tooth’s interior, thoroughly cleanse the cavity and fill it with a special dental material. The final step of a root canal involves reinforcing the tooth with a dental crown or similar restoration, helping to restore its original form and functionality. This procedure is typically completed in one to two visits, ensuring efficiency and convenience for our patients.

Contrary to common perceptions, modern root canal treatments are designed to be as pain-free as possible, utilizing the latest advancements in dental technology, techniques and anesthesia to significantly reduce discomfort.
