Non Surgical Root Canal

Root Canal

With more than 14 million performed yearly, root canals are one of the most performed dental procedures. Though the term “root canal” has become the ultimate comparison for things that aren’t fun, the procedure has actually become streamlined, fast and relatively painless.

A root canal can eliminate the need for bridges or dental implants because you’ll keep and use the natural tooth.

Damage to the center of a tooth or “pulp” can cause infection in the blood vessels that support the tooth. The infection can become painful and over time the tooth will become weak. This kind of damage can be caused by things like:

  • Cracks or chips
  • Decay deep in the tooth
  • Trauma or
  • Too many dental procedures to the same tooth

An infected pulp can result in painful swelling in the tooth, sensitivity to pain or temperature in the tooth and surrounding gums.

If you believe you’re experiencing the symptoms of tooth infection, schedule an exam with Dr. David Hubert or Dr. Adam Hubert to determine if a non-surgical root canal is recommended to remove the infected pulp, clean the tooth and seal it against further damage or decay.
