As with all treatment that Westport Family Dental provides, Dr. Pizzino and Dr. Drexler will ensure your complete comfort and understanding. A root canal is nothing to be worried about, it is however extremely important in the saving of your tooth!
There is no reason for concern if you require a root canal. Endodontics, also known as root canal therapy, refers to a filling of the root structure of your tooth. This is usually required as a result of trauma to the tooth or significant decay that involves the nerve or pulp of your tooth.
During an endodontic procedure, the tooth is cleaned, filled and restored to its original shape and size. Generally, a crown is placed over the tooth to protect it from further problems. This crown will protect your tooth for years to come, and the endodontic treatment allows your tooth to survive.
So do not be concerned if Dr. Pizzino or Dr. Drexler communicates that you require a root canal. Root Canal Therapy is quite common and a procedure that Dr. Pizzino and Dr. Drexler have performed on so many occasions.
