A root canal is a procedure that can save an infected or defective tooth by treating the issue and then restoring the tooth with a crown or filling. Despite the jokes you may hear about root canals, modern root canal treatment is virtually pain-free, and can often be completed in one or two visits.
Dr. Nobile stays current on the latest root canal techniques. In addition to attending numerous lectures, he participated in a hands-on course given by Dr. Stephen Buchanan, the dental expert who developed the root canal procedure used at our office. Our goal is to properly diagnose the issue, determine whether you need root canal therapy, and treat the tooth as painlessly as possible. In fact, many of our patients even fall asleep during the procedure.
