Amarillo, TX Root Canal Therapy

Teeth that are significantly infected or decayed may require root canal treatment. Usually requiring one or two visits at Sherwood Dental Center in Amarillo, root canals are a cost-effective and healthy alternative to tooth extraction. During the root canal, Dr. Koen will use special instruments to clean out the tooth’s pulp, nerve tissue, bacteria, and any present decay. Once thoroughly clean, the tooth will be filled and sealed with medicated dental material over one or two appointments. Then, for additional protection, Dr. Koen will place a dental crown over the tooth. If you experience any pain or discomfort in your teeth or gums, contact us immediately to receive the care that you need.
