Dr. Caracioni is skilled and successful at saving significantly damaged, decayed or diseased teeth using endodontic therapy, commonly called root canal. Inside each tooth is living pulp. When the pulp is injured or diseased, the tissue dies and your tooth becomes infected, which can lead to tooth loss. Dr. Caracioni removes the damaged pulp, seals the root canal and places a crown over the treated tooth for strength and protection.
Most of the time, endodontic therapy is a relatively simple procedure with little or no discomfort. Best of all, root canal therapy can save your tooth and your smile. If you are experiencing pain or discomfort in your teeth or gums, contact Enchanted Smiles immediately to receive the advanced dental care you need.
