Root canal therapy is a highly effective dental procedure designed to save a tooth that is severely infected or damaged. At DC Family Dental, we utilize advanced techniques to perform root canal therapy in District of Columbia, Washington, ensuring a comfortable and successful treatment for patients.

Benefits of Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy offers several important benefits, including:

  • Pain Relief: Alleviates the severe pain associated with infected or damaged tooth pulp.
  • Tooth Preservation: Saves the natural tooth, preventing the need for extraction.
  • Improved Oral Health: Eliminates infection, preventing it from spreading to adjacent teeth and gums.
  • Restored Function: Allows the tooth to function normally after being restored with a crown or filling.

The Root Canal Procedure
The root canal procedure involves several key steps:

  1. Initial Consultation: Dr. Mayur Patel will conduct a thorough examination and take X-rays to assess the extent of the infection or damage.
  2. Anesthesia: Local anesthesia is administered to ensure patient comfort throughout the procedure.
  3. Cleaning the Root Canal: The infected or damaged pulp is removed from the tooth, and the root canals are cleaned and disinfected.
  4. Filling the Canal: The cleaned root canals are filled with a biocompatible material called gutta-percha to seal them and prevent further infection.
  5. Restoration: The tooth is restored with a crown or filling to protect it and restore its function and appearance.
