Root Canal Treatment

A root canal is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected. During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp are removed and replaced with a filling material called gutta percha. Without treatment, the tissue surrounding the tooth will become infected and an abscesses may form. In the past infected or badly decayed teeth would have to removed, but thanks to advances in root canal therapy, more dentists today are often able to salvage these teeth. If your tooth is severely damaged or decayed, come to North Port, FL. Our dental practice offers services in endodontics and root canals designed to preserve our patients’ teeth utilizing rotary instrumentation to reduce post-operative discomfort and get better long term results.

Don’t Give Up on Your Teeth

Even if your teeth seem non-restorable, we may be able to help. If we determine that you’re a good candidate for root canal therapy, we’ll take the time to explain the procedure and answer any questions you might have about your treatment.

Be aware, on some occasions Dr. McCartney may refer you to a local Endodontist for root canal treatment, if he feels it would be in the best interest of the patient. To learn more about our endodontics and root canal services or to schedule a consultation, call us today.
