When decay or trauma has damaged the nerve inside of your tooth, root canal therapy is the only way to save the tooth and prevent future pain and infection. The treatment involves cleaning the inner chamber of the tooth and placing a filling material inside to seal out bacteria. Dr. Caligan performs most root canal treatments right here in our office, using a microscope to magnify the inside of the tooth up to 20x the naked eye. This attention to detail helps minimize the risk of future problems. Believe it or not, more patients fall asleep during this procedure than any other we perform.
