When decay advances to the inner tissue of a tooth, or when trauma exposes this tissue, a simple filling procedure is not enough to restore dental health. A root canal is a more extensive treatment that can save and restore teeth affected by advanced decay or trauma. We use modern techniques to make this procedure gentle and comfortable. It provides substantial relief, and can eliminate the need for extraction. Dr. Jeffery A. Hennigan and Dr. Nathan Bray use advanced techniques to remove decayed tissue, preserve healthy tissue, and restore your tooth with a custom crown made specifically to match your teeth. Contact Lake Area Dentistry to learn more about how root canal treatment at our Lake Charles, LA, practice can benefit you.
If you are experiencing symptoms of advanced decay, or if you have suffered dental trauma, it is important to seek treatment as soon as possible.
