Root Canal Therapy from Crooked Road Family Dentistry

Do you have a toothache or a tooth that’s sensitive to hot or cold foods and drinks? Both are symptoms of an infected or abscessed tooth. Saving an infected or abscessed tooth requires a special procedure known as a root canal.

During a root canal, our Rocky Mount dental team will remove the infected nerve from the center of your tooth, fill it with a safe material known as gutta-percha, and then place a protective crown over it. Removing the infected nerve will let us save your tooth and its root while the crown will restore its strength and appearance. If your infected tooth isn’t treated, your symptoms can worsen and you may even lose your tooth as a result.

Has one of your teeth developed a toothache or unusual sensitivity to hot and cold? Call Crooked Road Family Dentistry to learn more about root canal therapy. With a root canal procedure from our office, we can help you save your tooth and restore your oral health. We’re happy to offer root canal therapy to patients from Rocky Mount, Roanoke, Martinsville, Danville, Timberlake, Lynchburg, and beyond.
