A root canal is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is severly decayed or becomes infected.
When the nerve of a tooth becomes infected a root canal becomes necessary. The root canal procedure requires the removal of the nerve and pulp inside of the tooth followed by a thorough cleaning and sealing of the tooth.
Although root canal procedures have the reputation of being painful, the procedure itself is no more painful than having a filling. At AzzawiDental with the use of Laser Dentistry and Waterlase technology the procedure can be done without traditional pain-causing drills, and there is no additional cost!
Having a Laser Root Canal procedure has the following benefits:
– Reduction in bacterial counts in the root canal
– Minimally invasive technique conserves tooth structure
– Significantly less pain
– Reduces risk of re-infection
