During root canal therapy, the nerve and pulp are removed from the center of the tooth in order to clean the tooth, treat it, and seal it from further infection. While the description of this general dentistry procedure may cause you to shiver in fear, Dr. Philip J. Gordon of Gordon Dental of Leawood is here to ensure that patients who need root canal therapy will receive a thorough and painless treatment procedure.
It is essential that you receive prompt attention if you have an infected tooth. Putting off necessary root therapy will only worsen your symptoms and make neighboring teeth vulnerable to infection. You do not need to allow any fear or anxiety about the dentist or the procedure keep you from receiving root canal therapy. Infected teeth are painful, but root canal therapy is a painless procedure done to treat and heal the teeth. Gordon Dental of Leawood provides patients with painless root canal therapy to restore the health of the teeth before more serious dental issues occur.
