Endodontics

For some people, the two scariest words in the English language are “root canal”. Fortunately, patients at Mirage Dental discovered that root canal treatment does not have to be scary at all.  At Mirage Dental, we have years of experience in root canal treatment.

What is Root Canal Treatment?

Root canal treatment, also known as endodontics, deals with the treatment of dental pulp – the soft tissue inside the tooth. This procedure is often the last measure used to save a tooth prior to extraction.  The pulp of the tooth contains the nerves, arteries, veins and lymph tissue. By the time decay advances near or into the pulp, the tooth is at high risk of infection and begins to ache. Thankfully, root canal treatment at our office has saved many teeth from extraction.
