Root Canal Therapy – Greater Inwood

Infected Teeth Solution

A root canal is a highly effective service that dentists utilize to restore a deeply infected tooth. For patients with a tooth that is severely decayed, a root canal may be your last chance to avoid having it extracted. Dr. Mark Lawton is adept at performing root canals and returning damaged teeth to a strong and stable state. Whether you have serious decay or a painfully abscessed tooth, a root canal may be necessary, but fear not – you’re in good hands!

Many of our patients have heard horror stories about root canals from friends and family, but we’re happy to let you know that there’s not a lot of truth to these rumors. Today’s modern tools and techniques have helped make root canal therapy very comfortable – in fact, most people say that it feels the same as receiving a small filling. While there may be some mild discomfort in the days following the procedure, the benefits are well worth it. Root canal therapy has a success rate of over 90%, and many treated teeth are able to stay a healthy part of our patients’ smiles for the rest of their lives.
