At Stamas Dental Group, Dr. Stamas and his team know that toothaches may be caused by more serious conditions than simple cavities. We want to use the most conservative approach to save your tooth. Root canals help you avoid the complications of unnecessary extractions.

Root Canal Therapy, also called endodontic dentistry, protects and preserves teeth that would otherwise be lost due to painful and long term infection. Severe pain is caused by damaged or infected nerves that run from the root to the crown of a tooth. Left untreated, infections can cause tooth loss as well as damage to the jaw bone. Fortunately, modern dentistry has made root canal therapy a relatively routine and virtually painless procedure. Once the tooth is completely numbed, the infected nerve tissue within the root is removed. Then those previously infected canals within the tooth are contoured, disinfected, and filled to preserve the structural integrity of the tooth and to prevent reinfection. Finally, Dr. Stamas will prepare a customized crown to protect the tooth and root canal system as well as to ensure the natural shape and appearance of the tooth.

If you are experiencing severe pain, call Dr. Stamas immediately to schedule an appointment.
