It is no longer necessary to have your tooth extracted due to a toothache in a badly decayed tooth. Earlier in such situations, the tooth was pulled out. Modern dentistry now allows us to get such a tooth saved with a root canal procedure. The tooth would then need a crown to restore it and prevent it from breaking apart. With the help of modern anaesthetic technologies, root canals can be accomplished absolutely pain free! We are able to complete most root canals in one 60 - 90 minute appointment.
