Root Canal (Endodontics) in Summerlin
When significant damage occurs to the soft tissue inside of your tooth, known as the dental pulp, you may need a specialized kind of procedure called a root canal.
Our staff is highly trained in endodontics, the branch of dentistry that specializes in handling disease and injury of dental pulp to ensure you keep your teeth for years to come.
What is a root canal?
Unfortunately, when cavities (decaying parts of your teeth) are left untreated or when more severe damage to the tooth isn’t fixed, damage to the core of your tooth can result. A root canal is a specialized procedure in which the pulp is removed from the center of your tooth, the canal is reshaped and then replaced with a fortifying filler to help restore your tooth’s strength and longevity. No teeth pulling needed.
