Root Canal Therapy Can Save an Infected Tooth in Your Smile

Posted .

Drs. Jared Hill and Jerel Hill along with the rest of our At Hill Family Dental team are pleased to offer root canal therapy for our patients in Orem, Utah, and the surrounding communities. This endodontic therapy restores damaged tooth pulp and nerves which may be infected. Without the root canal treatment, the damaged tooth may die, leaving you to have the tooth extracted.

A root canal treatment can restore the tooth back to normal health and function. During a root canal, one of our skilled dentists will carefully remove all of the infected tissues from the inside of the tooth. Next, he will clean the area and fill it with a rubberlike material that will seal the area and prevent bacteria from getting back in. Then, the restored tooth will be capped, typically with a dental crown, so the tooth will function normally again.

We are pleased to offer root canal treatment in a comfortable, relaxing setting. With the help of anesthesia, this procedure will be comfortable and can be done with one or two visits. If you have been troubled by a tooth, we invite you to give us a call at 801-225-7110 and let one of our dentists examine you. We are always here to help you have the healthy smile you deserve in the most comfortable setting possible!
