Root Canal Treatment in Hyannis, MA

Root canal therapy can be used to save an infected or damaged tooth. Unlike tooth extraction, which involves removing the damaged tooth in its entirety, root canal therapy removes only the damaged areas inside the tooth, which means that you will not have to worry about getting a replacement tooth. Root canal therapy is often recommended if:

  • An abscess or infection has developed inside a tooth
  • A tooth has been injured or traumatized
  • Decay has reached the pulp of a tooth

Root canal therapy is generally a pain-free and convenient option for saving your teeth, thanks to the advent of local anesthetic. After the therapy is complete, Dr. Wood will place a dental crown over the tooth for protection.
