Root Canal Darien, CT

A root canal is often thought of as being a dreaded, painful procedure. But, a root canal is often the best way to preserve a natural tooth and prevent further damage to your smile.

Whenever possible, Dr. Pereira will recommend a root canal to save a tooth and avoid an extraction.

Root Canals: What To Expect

The term root canal refers to the interior of a tooth where the pulp and nerves are located. A root canal treatment is needed when a tooth is significantly damaged or has decay that extends into the pulp chamber. Tooth pain is usually the first sign patients experience, though a dentist can spot infection during routine examinations.

Dr. Pereira will explain the process prior to your treatment and ensure your comfort during the procedure. In most cases, a root canal is no more uncomfortable than a dental filling.

To strengthen a tooth after root canal therapy, Dr. Pereira may recommend the use of a dental crown. Custom fit and color matched to your natural teeth, a dental crown fits around the tooth like a cap and will support the long term health of the tooth.
