Root Canals

diagram of root canal

Mention these two words and most people shriek. An infection inside a tooth requires a specialized cleaning process and filling material to ensure that the tooth can be saved. This is done with the help of our highly-qualified root canal specialist. Once the inside nerve of the tooth is treated, you will return to have a crown placed on the tooth to prevent fracturing. Teeth without a nerve supply tend to crack easily. A crown helps to hold a tooth together and withstand chewing forces. In many instances, Dr. Macaulay has been able to help our patients avoid needing a root canal by utilizing a specialized medication imported from Australia to sterilize a cavity preparation and insulate it from further infection. This is treatment is most successful when decay is treated early.
