Root Canal Therapy
I hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful weather this summer. As an
avid boater, this time of year is my favorite.
Many patients have queried myself and my staff about the
"wallpaper" in the operatories. Actually all the rooms are
painted by my good friend Wendy Salerno using a variety of techniques. You
can contact her at 330-278-3716.
Root canal therapy is a very common procedure that has been performed in the
U.S. for over 70 years. The success rate of root canal therapy is over
95%. Teeth may require root canal due to trauma, deep decay, or from a
periodontal infection. During the procedure, the internal portion of the
tooth (the pulp) is cleansed and shaped, at which time rubber cones are placed
down the canal to provide a hermetic seal. After the tooth is root canal
treated, it is necessary to build the tooth up with filling material (crown
buildup). After it is recommended that the tooth be crowned or
capped. I have personally performed over 6,000 root canals and can assure
my patients that we can do the procedure painlessly due to a special injection
If you or someone you love has a tooth that may require root canal therapy,
contact our office for a no charge consultation.
