Root Canals - East Glenville & Clifton Park, NY
Naturally, you’d be hard-pressed to find someone who actually wanted a root canal, but sometimes a root canal is necessary to save a decayed or diseased tooth.
With advances in technology, today’s root canals are virtually pain-free. They are also cost-effective and produce visually appealing results. The inflamed and/or infected tooth pulp is removed, and the tooth is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected. The tooth is then filled with a rubber-like material called gutta-percha. It will look and function just like any other tooth in your mouth.
