Root Canal Therapy

Root Canal Therapy saves many teeth that would have to be removed otherwise. When the pulp (nerve) in the center of the tooth (including the root) is inflamed or infected, great pain can result. In Root Canal Therapy, this  tissue is removed from the center of the tooth all the way down to the end of the roots. Once clean, this space is sealed with an inert material to keep the space from becoming reinfected. About 90 % of root canals are successful. There is normally no pain during the procedure, but often is some soreness for a few days afterward. Following the root canal most teeth will need to reinforced with a build up and covered with a crown (cap) for strength.

We proudly offer rotary endodontics at our convenient location in Big Spring, TX. Rotary endodontics allows Dr. David Ward to perform root canal treatment a lot faster.
