Root Canal Therapy

Crosstown Dental of Palmyra is trained to offer our patients root canal therapy when necessary. A root canal is an endodontic treatment used to repair and save an infected or damaged tooth. A tooth that is infected causes pain and can lead to an abscessed tooth.

A root canal is similar to a filling and goes a step further to clean the infected and inflamed pulp. This procedure allows your tooth to be restored.   In addition, modern dentistry has made it possible to perform a root canal with little to no pain.

Our skilled team of professionals will guide you through the process to help you make an informed decision about your overall health.

Regular dental care is an important preventative measure.  Dental exams are used to discover problems early, when they are easier to treat.   Once a tooth has an infected nerve, there are only two options: removal of the tooth or a root canal.
