Root Canal Treatment

A common reason for root canal treatment is an infected or abscessed tooth, which may result from a deep cavity, periodontal disease, or even a fractured tooth. Symptoms such as swelling, sensitivity to hot and cold or discomfort on touching your tooth, a dentist should be consulted immediately.

Root canal treatment removes the pulp tissue, which is composed of a nerve and blood supply within the tooth. After all the material has been removed from within the root, the canal or canals if it is a multi-rooted tooth, are sterilized and sealed with a material that prevents bacteria from re-entering. Finally, a crown will be placed as a final restoration. Back teeth are usually crowned or capped shortly after a root canal has been performed to prevent the tooth from shattering due to the pressure put on it by chewing.

Root canal treatment is not uncomfortable, and in some instances can be performed in one visit. The discomfort associated with root canal is due to the infection associated with the need for the root canal. Root canals can relieve tooth pain. Our dentist at Paul L. Gregory DDS can help!

Our Happy Customers

"As excruciating as going to the dentist is, I always look forward to my visits here. Dr. Gregory has been my dentist for a few years now and he is absolutely amazing at what he does. Linda, his sister, who manages the office is awesome and accommodating. Highly recommended!"

Yalile

"Dr. Gregory is truly the best. He (and his office manager / sister Linda) are very pleasant to work with, but most importantly, he is extremely thoughtful and someone who I trust completely in a field in which that can be very hard to find. I never feel that he is trying to "up-sell" some procedure that is unnecessary, and in fact on several occasions has recommended against certain cosmetic procedures that others had recommended. He really is a trusted "dental consultant" (if that makes sense?)- and always willing to offer his time when needed. Don't hesitate to go to him!"

Kevin

"I've been going to Dr Gregory for ten years and he's still the best in his field . I left for a year due to insurance changes and was miserable. The office is super clean . Linda is fantastic ."
