At Needham Laser Dentistry, we are dedicated to helping those patients in need of root canal therapy.

When infection damages the pulp of the tooth your dentist or an endodontist may have to perform root canal therapy to save your tooth.

This treatment involves opening the tooth; removing the damaged pulp from the inside; and then disinfecting, shaping, filling and sealing the tooth. Depending on how much infection is present, you may be put on a medicine regimen prior to the procedure.

After root canal therapy, the tooth may need to be restored with a crown for protection. After that, the tooth will continue to function like your other natural teeth.

Endodontists are experienced in emergency pain control, and the root canal procedure itself is usually painless.

If you have any questions about root canal therapy, don’t hesitate to contact us today at (781) 444-1505.
