Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is sometimes the best solution for a tooth that has suffered severe decay, infection, or injury. Our dentist, Dr. Armin Salimi, uses extensive skill and experience to safely treat the infected tooth pulp and restore your tooth to its full function and appearance. If you would like to learn more about the nature and benefits of root canal therapy in College Park, Maryland, contact Expert Smiles to speak with our friendly team.
Commonly called a root canal treatment is an endodontic therapy that is recommended when the tooth pulp and nerves become infected or damaged. This may occur if injury or decay reaches deep into the tooth, past the outer enamel layer. When left untreated, this type of infection and disease may cause the tooth to die and necessitate tooth extraction.
To restore the health of the tooth and avoid the need for extraction, our skilled dentist will remove the infected and injured tissues from within the tooth, disinfect the tooth, and fill it with a permamnent medicated material. We will then cap the tooth with a restoration, such as a dental crown, to return the tooth to its original shape and structure. In most cases, a root canal can be completed in only one or two comfortable visits to our office.
Root canal treatment has a reputation for being a painful treatment. In reality, however, root canal treatment can often be completed with minimal discomfort thanks to advanced techniques, tools, and anesthesia. Our dentist, along with our entire dental team, works hard to provide you with a pleasant, comfortable experience each time you visit our office.
