Root Canal Therapy in Beverly, MA

At one time, the only way to handle a severely damaged tooth that caused pain and other problems was extraction. As conservative dentists, we believe in preserving your natural teeth whenever possible. Root canal therapy enables us to repair a compromised tooth and revive your dental health.

The nerve center, or pulp, in your teeth is composed of veins, arteries, lymph vessels, and connective tissue. Thin canals run down to the roots to supply necessary nutrients and keep your teeth healthy. Injury, deep decay, or illness can severely damage the pulp, causing it to die. When this happens, infection builds in the tooth, causing pain and leading to potential tooth loss if you don’t seek treatment.

During a root canal, your dentist will remove the diseased tissue and sanitize the canals tooth to stop future issues. The doctor will then fill the tooth with a man-made substance, restoring your comfortable, healthy smile. Although root canals receive a bad wrap, the procedure usually takes just one appointment, and most patients feel better after treatment. Any mild soreness can be relieved with over-the-counter analgesics.
