Root canals are often cast in a negative light.

We work hard to provide a comfortable, enjoyable dental experience, and that includes root canals!

What Can I Expect When Getting A Root Canal?

A root canal is a natural channel inside of a tooth that contains tooth pulp and nerves. When this root canal becomes infected, a dentist or endodontist will clean the infection and sterilize the affected area of your tooth. Once completed, Dr. William Stewart will fill the root canal and then seal the tooth with a dental crown to add stability and aesthetics.

Do I Need A Root Canal?

You may be a candidate for root canal therapy if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • Severe toothache
  • Extended sensitivity to hot and cold
  • Pain or sensitivity when chewing
  • Swelling of nearby gum tissue
  • Blemishes on gums near the infected tooth
