A root canal is necessary when the pulp in the inside of the tooth becomes infected. Sometimes the infection quickly results in significant tooth pain, but sometimes it is first discovered by an x-ray. Dr. Shaaban performs root canal therapy, a treatment that removes the infected interior of the tooth and rebuilds its strength and function. If you have a toothache and think you may need root canal therapy, please contact out office today to schedule an appointment.
Endodontics is the area of dentistry that treats the interior of the tooth. Although there are specialists in endodontics, root canal therapy is a standard treatment that can be performed by some general dentists. Root canal treatment also requires finishing the tooth with a crown. Dr. Shaaban provides routine endodontics and his expertise in cosmetic dentistry can ensure that the resulting crown beautifully completes your smile.
Without performing root canal therapy, the infection in your tooth can easily spread into surrounding teeth and even the jaw, damaging the jawbone itself. This can result in excruciating pain and even threaten your life. When a tooth is infected to this extent, it will not get better on its own and will only worsen.
