What Is a Root Canal?
More than 40 years serving families in Reston and Ashburn, VA.
Root canal treatment is a type of endodontic therapy that is often recommended if the tooth pulp and nerves become infected or damaged.
This may occur if injury or decay reaches deep into the tooth, past the outer enamel layer. When left untreated, this type of infection and disease may cause the tooth to die and necessitate tooth extraction.
To restore the health of the tooth and avoid the need for extraction, our skilled dentist will remove the infected and injured tissues from within the tooth, clean the tooth, and fill it with a medicated material. We will then cap the tooth with a restoration, such as a dental crown, to return the tooth to its original shape and structure.
In most cases, a root canal can be completed in only one or two comfortable visits to our office.
Root canal treatment has a reputation for being a painful treatment. In reality, however, root canal treatment can often be completed with minimal discomfort thanks to advanced techniques, tools, and anesthesia.
Our dentist, along with our entire dental team, works hard to provide you with a pleasant, comfortable experience each time you visit our office.
