Root canals are performed when the soft tissue inside a tooth (the pulp) becomes infected or damaged. Infected pulp tissue, when left untreated, can result in nerve damage and sensitivity. Pain and swelling may also result from this infection and can negatively affect the jawbone and your overall health. If you require root canal treatment, Schoolhouse Family Dentistry will help you set up an appointment and payment option which best works for you.
Dr. John is one of the most experienced Dentists in the state of Michigan. He pays careful attention to all his patients’ needs, as well as to the detail of his work. A root canal procedure can take anywhere from one to three appointments, and will remove any infected pulp tissue from inside the tooth and replace it with an inert material.
