In the past, teeth with diseased nerves have been removed from the mouth. However, through a root canal, the diseased tooth can be salvaged. In most cases, the root canal procedure is a simple treatment that involves little to no patient discomfort. The tooth is thoroughly cleaned, a temporary filling is placed, followed by a permanent filling or crown to protect and to provide longevity for the tooth.
Dr. Heck has spent 14 years doing root canal treatment and has spent extra time in attending continuing education courses, specifically in this area. Including training with microscopes in California with Dr. Ruddle, a leading expert in this field.
