What is root canal therapy?

Root canal therapy, also known as endodontic treatment, is a procedure to remove infected or damaged pulp from inside a tooth, relieving pain and saving the tooth from extraction.

Root canal therapy is needed when the pulp inside a tooth becomes infected or inflamed due to deep decay, repeated dental procedures, cracks, chips, or trauma to the tooth.

How is root canal therapy performed?

During root canal therapy, the infected or damaged pulp is carefully removed, the inside of the tooth is cleaned and disinfected, and then filled and sealed with a rubber-like material to prevent further infection.

Will root canal therapy be painful?

With modern techniques and anesthesia, root canal therapy is typically no more uncomfortable than getting a dental filling. Our team at Mark E. Massaro DDS in Tulsa, will ensure your comfort throughout the procedure.
