Root Canal Therapy and Endodontics in Canton, Ohio

Root canal therapy (also called endodontics) is treatment to repair and save a tooth that has been infected due to deep decay or a crack within the tooth. The treatment involves removing the tissue within the tooth and root, cleaning the infected area, and finishing it with a crown to restore strength to the tooth -- typically all done at one appointment at our office. 

What are the signs that a root canal is needed?

  • Severe tooth pain while chewing
  • Your tooth pain wakes you up at night
  • Teeth that are highly sensitive to hot or cold
  • Discoloration or darkening of the tooth
  • Swollen gums in the area of the infected tooth

Root canal therapy has a high rate of success and many teeth undergoing the procedure can be saved to last a lifetime.
