Dr. Miller Performs Gentle Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy has such an alarming reputation that simply uttering the phrase can strike fear into the hearts of even the most level-headed people. Here at Snow Park Dental, we want to remove the mystique and assure you that root canal therapy or RCT, is nowhere near as terrifying or painful as legend would have it seem.
Technically speaking, we all have root canals, that space in the center of every tooth that houses the soft, nerve-filled pulp. Sometimes decay or severe damage to the tooth can cause infection and inflammation of the pulp and, if left untreated, this can lead to pain, abscesses, and the need for tooth extraction.
Dr. Mark Miller has a special interest and expertise in the latest root canal therapies and he wants to share his knowledge with you in order to put you at ease about this procedure. Should Dr. Miller determine that RCT may be the best option for you, he will walk you through the process in clear language so you fully understand the steps which could save your tooth and preserve your smile.
If you are experiencing chronic tooth pain and inflammation around the base of a tooth, you may be a candidate for RCT. However, you won’t know for sure until you come in for a checkup.
