Root canal therapy is an effective treatment for restoring teeth that are severely infected, decayed, or damaged. Root canal therapy can help to prevent the need for tooth extraction, and will help restore your smile’s health, function, and beauty. During the treatment, our dentist, Dr. Ostrowski, will remove the infected or damaged portion of the tooth pulp, then fill in the tooth and cap it with a dental crown to protect the tooth and to restore its shape, appearance, and function. Your restoration will look natural and beautiful and will help you return to optimal oral health. Root canal therapy can prevent infection from spreading to other areas of the mouth. Your root canal therapy will be completed in just a couple painless visits to our dental office in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Please call Gaslight Village Family Dentistry today for more information on root canal therapy and to schedule your consultation.
