Root Canal Therapy
Teeth that are badly damaged by decay or fractures can be saved by root canal therapy. The sick or infected pulp of the tooth is removed and the inside of the roots are thoroughly cleaned. Then the space is filled with an inert sealer to prevent infection. The remaining natural roots can be used to support a crown and last for many years. At Fountaingrove dentistry we provide our patients with root canal therapy in most cases. If your case is very difficult, we have a great team of specialists we can refer you to, including Dr Jared Fortman , Dr Phillip Waterman, Dr Emine Loxley and Dr Brian Bozeman. These fine endodontists are root canal specialists and have years of experience taking care of our patients.
