We combine modern technology and expertise to make endodontics fun, uplifting and non threatening for the patients we serve.
A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed, well over 14 million every year. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need of dental implants or bridges. Root canal therapy is needed when the nerve of a tooth is affected by decay or infection. In order to save the tooth, the pulp (the living tissue inside the tooth), nerves, bacteria, and any decay are removed and the resulting space is filled with special, medicated, dental materials, which restore the tooth to its full function.
At Chelsea Dental, we use one of the most technologically advanced root canal systems. With this system, we can start and finish your root canal in one appointment! As well, the rotary system that we use makes your appointment a lot more relaxing and the outcomes more successful.
We highly recommend placing a crown on posterior teeth which have undergone root canal treatment as with the removal of pulp and blood supply tooth becomes brittle and is more prone to cracking with heavy bite forces.
