Root Canal Therapy

For many years, teeth that had an infection or diseased nerve had to be extracted. Now we can often save close to 95% of these cases with root canal treatment. At Dr. Lumani’s office, we believe in saving teeth instead of removing them so that you can have a happier, healthier, natural smile for a lifetime. A root canal is needed when the nerve of your tooth becomes irritated and infected, bacteria grows inside of the tooth causing pressure, pain, and sometimes swelling. Many things can cause this trauma, a physical blow, tooth clenching or grinding of teeth, deep decay, a large filling, or severe gum disease due to periodontal abscess.
