Further Information About Root Canal Treatments

A root canal can be performed either by an orthodontist or a general dentist depending on the nature and complexity of the problem. We will first evaluate your tooth and may suggest referring you to our endodontist if required.

Root canal treatments are usually completed in one or more visits. Our dental staff will first take a dental x-ray to determine the shape of the root canal and to see if there any signs of infection in the neighboring tissue or bone.
