Non surgical Root Canal Therapy aka “The root Canal”

I'd rather have a root canal than watch this movie!

Almost every American will experience some dental discomfort in their lifespan.  Root canal therapy is often misunderstood. In this blog I will share some of my experiences over the past ten years.  

When bacteria reaches your dental nerve the body creates an inflammatory response.  Each person is unique but at some point the bacteria overwhelm the inflammatory response and pain persists.  

Once the dental pulp (Nerve) becomes infected root canal therapy can save your tooth.  

Here is a case I started and completed in two visits at Leesville Dental Studio.  

There is a large nerve hanging on the roots of this tooth.  I have to be extremely careful to clean out the root canal system and keep my materials inside the tooth, and scope out the anatomy of the tooth.  

Watch how I have filled the canal according to the unique anatomy of the tooth. When you search for a dentist in Raleigh, NC search for Dr. Vejay K. Ravindran at Leesville dental studio.   I can provide you cost effective, and smart treatment planning decisions to keep you oral health rocking!!!
