The Royersford Dentist Offers Endodontics (Root Canal Therapy) Services in Spring-Ford, Limerick, Phoenixville, Trappe, Pottstown, and Collegeville
The goal of endodontic treatment is to change the internally infected or damaged tooth to an inert, viable state, so that it may continue to function in the chewing process.
Endodontics (Root Canals)
Today with an endodontic procedure called root canal therapy, the diseased nerve is removed and the canal cleaned and sealed in order to protect it. In most cases, Dr. Paster will then place a crown over the tooth to give it a new surface and make it stronger.
Dr. Paster is trained in performing root canals using rotary instruments, which cleans and debrides the internal surfaces of the tooth in addition to speeding up the process of root canal treatment.
Alternatives to endodontic therapy
Most of the time, endodontic therapy is a relatively simple procedure done in one visit. It can save your diseased or injured tooth with little or no discomfort. The only alternative to endodontic therapy is extraction of the infected, diseased or injured tooth. If the infected tooth must be removed, dental implants , bridges, or removable partial dentures are usually an option, but saving the existing tooth is always the first priority.
Choosing the right dentist who cares about helping you make the right decisions for your oral health may be a daunting task; Dr. Paster has extensive experience in root canal therapy.
