Root Canal Therapy

root canal in clarksville tn

If you suspect you need root canal therapy don’t delay!  Call your dentist in Clarksville, Schmitt Dental to save your tooth and avoid future infection.   Root canal therapy, also known as endodontic therapy, is a process that starts by carefully removing infected or inflamed pulp from the inside of the tooth.   After this pulpectomy, the nerve is taken out of the root canal.  Afterwards, the inside of the tooth is carefully disinfected and cleaned.  Then the tooth is filled and sealed with a rubber-like substance.  Finally, a crown is put on the tooth so it can continue to function like any other tooth.   Contrary to a lot of jokes, our root canal therapy is very similar to having a simple routine filling.

You can expect a comfortable experience during and after your appointment at Schmitt Dental, your dentist in Clarksville.
