Root Canals and Endodontic Services
Dr. Rogers offers endodontic therapy treatments right here in our Spokane dental office. Root canals are a more complex procedure that not every dentist offers, but we do. Our extensive experience with endodontic therapy ensures a predictable, relaxed procedure that puts your needs first.
When Do I Need a Root Canal?
Root canal therapy is a treatment used to preserve teeth that have experienced nerve damage or infection. Symptoms often include:
- Gradual darkening of the tooth enamel
- Recurrent abscesses along the gums
- Severe sensitivity or pain
- Deep cavities or fractures extending into the nerve
We will take an x-ray to determine the extent of infection in and around the nerve chamber. The treatment will then involve removing areas of infection, along with the nerve tissues. Then the tooth is filled and sealed off, preventing reinfection from occurring.
