There are two words that can strike fear into the most courageous of souls: root canal. But at Jordan Landing Smiles in West Jordan, root canals are performed with the patient’s comfort uppermost in mind.
A root canal is a procedure done to save a tooth. It treats the inside of the tooth, and becomes necessary when a cavity infects its interior, which can cause increased sensitivity and a whole lot of pain.
The technical term for a root canal is endodontic therapy. It works like this: after an access hole is drilled in the surface of the infected tooth, the damaged interior, or pulp, is removed. The remaining tooth is thoroughly cleaned, filled, and sealed. A crown is placed over the whole thing to protect it, and provide a natural-looking appearance.
West Jordan Dental Office also offers cosmetic dentistry, and other services. Call today to schedule an appointment or consultation.
