A root canal is another routine procedure that the McKeel Family Dentistry offers. Once a tooth’s nerve has declined to a certain point, we may need to remove the nerve to protect you from pain, swelling, and infection.
During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp in the tooth are both micro surgically removed. The tooth is then cleaned thoroughly and sealed with a specialized material. The nerve is what allows sensation in the tooth, but its removal does not affect the function of the tooth.
At the McKeel Family Dentistry, our dentists are skilled and have advanced training in giving root canal treatments. If you need a root canal treatment, please call us at (503) 665-8888 or visit us at our Gresham location.
