When a tooth’s pulp, also called the nerve, becomes inflamed or infected, the tooth can die. Dr. Khalil and Dr. Cho may suggest root canal therapy to save your tooth from extraction. Don’t fear a root canal. Modern techniques, tools, and anesthesia make the experience so gentle that many patients sleep through it!
A root canal involves removal and replacement of tissue within the canal of a tooth’s root. The canal is then filled with a manmade substance to retain its structural integrity. Dr. Khalil and Dr. Cho perform root canals in our Arlington dentist office for your convenience. Schedule your dental visit or second opinion appointment at Arlington Dentistry by Design today. If dental anxiety keeps you from getting dental work that you need, such as a root canal, ask us about oral sedation.
