Parma, OH Root Canals

Family Dental Care

When the nerve of a tooth has been affected by decay or infection, you need root canal therapy.

In order to save the tooth, the pulp (the living tissue inside the tooth), nerves, bacteria, and decay are removed and the resulting space is filled with special medicated dental materials which will restore your tooth to its full function with a protective crown and post.

Having a root canal done on a tooth is the treatment of choice to save a tooth that otherwise would die and have to be removed. Many patients believe that removing a tooth that has problems is the solution, but what is not realized is that extracting (pulling) a tooth will ultimately be more costly and cause significant problems for adjacent teeth.

Long lasting root canal treatments
