Root canal treatment, also called endodontics, is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected. Root canal procedures are performed when the nerve of the tooth becomes infected or damaged. During a root canal procedure, the nerve and surrounding pulp tissue is removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed.
Root Canals Without Pain
Root canal procedures have the reputation of being painful. Dr. Feiner does his utmost to ensure that the procedure itself is no more painful than having a filling placed.
If you are feeling pain in your tooth
It is important to call your dentist immediately and have the tooth examined for cavities or infection. Catching a cavity when it is new can prevent a root canal from developing later. Dr. Feiner recommends regular checkups and cleanings every six months in order to prevent the development of cavities and and the need for endodontics.
