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 Patients

"Dr. Gregory has been my dentist for 20+ years. He is an excellent and thorough dentist. Recently I undertook a smile restoration with 6 porcelain veneers. Dr. Gregory did an excellent job explaining all the ins and outs of the procedure, and did all of the work to his usual high standard. I couldn't be happier!"

"Dr. Gregory is the BEST dentist I've ever been to. He has taken great care of me for the almost 10 years that I have seen him for preventative care and also now is helping me straighten my teeth using aligners. He has a terrific "bedside" manner, only does what is necessary, and is clear and thorough in every cleaning. He will fit you in when you need to see him and takes ample time at every visit. At every routine care visit, he is incredibly thorough. He's also a nice person, and I love that it's a family business and his sister helps him run the business. You can't go wrong with choosing Dr. Gregory as your dentist!!"

"My husband and I have been patients of Dr Paul Gregory for over a decade. He is an excellent highly skilled dentist who is also a caring and conscientious and professional who always puts his patients first above monetary considerations. He is personable and trustworthy and makes each visit a pleasure and how many dentists can you say that about lol. Most importantly I know he has our best interest at heart and knows his field and we trust him to give us the best possible care. A shout out to his sister Linda who is the office manager. She is a lovely person who is extremely well organized and runs the office super smoothly and it is always a joy to chat with her. I give Dr. Gregory my highest recommendation."
