Groveport Dental Group can perform Root Canal treatment when the core of a tooth is diseased or damaged and repair is required to keep the tooth from dying or being removed. This procedure requires the removal of the core or “pulp” of the tooth. The root canal is cleaned and then sealed by a filling to prevent any further damage to the tooth. Your dentist will then place a crown over the tooth to help make it stronger. Most of the time, a root canal is a relatively simple procedure with little or no discomfort involved. Best of all, it can save your tooth and your smile!
