Endodontic Root Canal Therapy

Saving a Damaged Tooth

Tooth Cross Section Illustration

Endodontic therapy (root canal therapy) is the treatment of removing the tooth's pulp to eliminate infection and protect the tooth from future infection. Without treatment, an infection inside the tooth will abscess and can spread to the bone surrounding the tooth and beyond.

Dr. Clausen performs a relatively painless endodontic procedure. We offer anti-anxiety sedation dentistry.

To assure that the is no infection before applying the permanent crown, the root canal procedure maybe spread over a few visits

Dental Implants v. Endodontic therapy Alternative

A dental implant or a removable dental bridge offer patients with alternatives to root canal therapy. A dental implant will provide a more secure anchor for the crown than a dental bridge.

Dr. Clausen can help the patient to decide which treatment is better for their unique situation.
