Root Canal Therapy

Root Canal Therapy

Dentist explaining to a patient that often, a tooth that has become infected because of a neglected cavity or trauma can be saved with modern root canal therapy

Our goal at Anchorage Midtown Dental Center is to restore your mouth to the most natural state possible. Often, a tooth that has become infected because of a neglected cavity or trauma can be saved with modern root canal therapy. This leaves the tissues surrounding the tooth root intact and preserves sensation, bone and facial contours.

Root canals have some A LONG WAY since the old days. Modern root canals are relatively fast, painless and predictable. We treat all but the most complicated root canals in house and have excellent referral sources for those that are better treated by an endodontist (root canal specialist). If we are unable to save a tooth with a root canal, many times we can extract the tooth and place a same day implant while you are still numb. Now THAT is convenience!
