As your Elizabethtown dentist, Dr. Proctor has experience with endodontic procedures. Our most common endodontics procedure is root canals. When a tooth has a deep cavity that goes all the way to the nerve, root canal treatment is needed to save the tooth. Root canal treatment removes the nerve of the tooth and then the tooth is filled with permanent tooth colored material. With today's technology, root canal treatment feels just like having a filling to the patient. Usually a crown is recommended after root canal treatment to patients who are over 18 and the teeth have finished changing and shifting. If you are experiencing tooth pain and may be in need of a root canal, our endodontist can help!
