Milford, MA Dentist
Root canal dentist in Milford, MA 01757
Root canals are an extremely common dental procedure. Did you know that there are over 15 million root canals performed each year in the United States? This procedure can save your natural tooth structure. No one wants unnecessary extractions!
A root canal is used to treat teeth that have an infected nerve. Some things you may notice if you have nerve issues include hot & cold sensitivity, pain with biting, and/or swelling.
Essentially, the infected nerve is removed and replaced with a synthetic material. The tooth is then prepped for a permanent crown to stabilize the tooth.
Our root canal specialist, Dr. Paul Kaplan, spends all day performing root canals, and would be more than happy to consult with you if you have any questions regarding this procedure.
