Do you have a severely damaged or infected tooth? Endodontic therapy–also known as root canal treatment–may be needed when a tooth is severely compromised but is not beyond saving. Many patients are nervous about the prospect of receiving a root canal, but we would like to offer further information to help you learn more about endodontic therapy and how it can benefit your smile.

Endodontic treatment can save a tooth that has been severely infected or decayed. To perform this treatment, our dentist will remove the affected pulp and nerves to prevent further infection or a painful tooth abscess. Then, he clean the tooth and seals it with a dental crown

While root canal therapy gained a poor reputation in previous years, the treatment process is no more unpleasant than dealing with tooth decay. In addition, root canal therapy today is no more painful than having a dental filling restoration.

Our experienced team will take excellent care of you during treatment. Our goal is to make sure you are as comfortable as possible while we work on saving your tooth and helping you maintain your healthy smile. If you would like to learn more about root canal therapy in Ventura, California, please feel free to contact Greg Wolfe Family Dentistry at 805-654-1174 and schedule an appointment with Dr. Greg L.
