Root canal therapy is often necessary when the pulp inside your tooth, which contains nerves and blood vessels, becomes infected or inflamed due to decay, cracks, chips or repeated dental procedures. Symptoms indicating the need for a root canal can include severe toothache, sensitivity to hot and cold and swelling or tenderness in the nearby gums. The procedure involves removing the infected or inflamed pulp, carefully cleaning and disinfecting the inside of the tooth, and then filling and sealing it to prevent further infection.

Our approach to root canal therapy prioritizes your comfort and health. Dr. Michael Bender uses the latest techniques and technology to ensure the procedure is as pain-free and efficient as possible. We take the time to address all your concerns, explaining each step of the process and providing detailed aftercare instructions to ensure a smooth recovery.
