Root Canal Therapy

When the pulp in the center of your tooth becomes inflamed or damaged, a root canal procedure is usually required to fix the problem. At Pinnacle Dental Group, our team of highly-trained dentists and specialists use the latest, cutting-edge technology and techniques to ensure that you are comfortable and experience minimal pain during your procedure.

The procedure can be as simple as having a filling placed. Your dentist or endodontist will carefully remove the infected pulp, then clean and seal the pulp chamber and root canals of the tooth. This procedure allows us to save your tooth and avoid complete removal or extraction.

Root Canal Therapy​​​​​​​What to expect during your appointment:

  • A consultation with a dentist or endodontist to review the problem and determine the best course of action
  • X-rays will be taken to check for infection to surrounding bone and tissue
  • A detailed discussion of the surgery procedure and recovery plan​​​​​​​
