At Beacon Dental, we provide root canal therapy and apicoectomy procedures to protect your oral health. Through these procedures, badly damaged or infected teeth are able to be saved. This drastically reduces the need for a tooth extraction in most cases, as it keeps natural teeth healthy while removing any exposed tissues from the tooth’s interior.
If you or anyone in your family are experiencing a tooth infection or has noticed swelling around a particular tooth, call our office in Winterville, NC today! By allowing us to evaluate the situation and determine your need for a root canal or apicoectomy, we can save your tooth from extraction.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is a procedure used to remove the infection from the interior of your tooth. Most often, teeth become infected due to severe decay or damage. By removing the infected pulp (internal tissues) through a small opening in the crown of the tooth, the dental structure is able to recover and function is restored. Once this has been completed, your tooth will be capped with a custom-made crown that prevents further damage and restores the full function of the tooth. With our CEREC technology, you can receive your new crown on the same day!
