Decay that has reached the inner portion of the tooth can cause a painful and dangerous infection that often requires tooth extraction if not treated in a timely manner.
Dr. Donald A. Tucker can perform a root canal to remove the infection and alleviate your pain at his practice in Buffalo, NY.
While root canals have a reputation for pain, you do not need to worry...
In addition to relieving discomfort caused by the infection, root canal therapy is a much more comfortable experience than its reputation suggests. We use less abrasive tools and local anesthesia to keep you comfortable.
Removing the infected tissue promptly can prevent the need for extraction. It is always preferable to preserve the natural tooth structure when possible.
Left untreated, the infection can spread from the affected tooth to the surrounding teeth and gums, jeopardizing your overall oral health and resulting in costly treatment.
