Root Canal Therapy

If you are experiencing an aching or throbbing pain in any of your teeth, you may need a root canal. Despite the negative connotations associated with the phrase “root canal”, the procedure is actually similar to performing a filling. You will not have any discomfort during this procedure, since we take great care in making sure that your tooth will be totally numb. Without treatment, loss of the tooth is likely, as tooth decay reaching the nerve tissue inside the tooth causes infection. The dental care providers at Hans Koenig DMD PA will save your tooth by gently removing damaged tissue and nerves, and then carefully cleaning and sealing it to protect it from bacteria.
