What is a Root Canal?

Root canal therapy is performed when the pulp of the tooth has experienced decay or damage, with the goal of treatment being to save the natural structure of the tooth. Our Duluth dentist begins your root canal by ensuring that you are comfortable by numbing the treatment site. The pulp chamber, or interior of your tooth, is then accessed and cleaned, ensuring the removal of the affected tissue. Dr. Moscattini then fills teeth with biocompatible material that helps preserve the strength of your tooth from the inside out.

Once cleaned and refilled, the tooth is shaped and capped with a dental crown. Root canals allow for the preservation of your teeth, preserving the health of your smile. Dr. Moscattini performs this procedure using an endodontic microscope, ensuring thorough removal of infected pulp, and aiding long term dental function.

Root Canal Retreatment

Teeth that have previously undergone root canal therapy sometimes require retreatment due to improperly sealed crowns or lingering infection in root systems. If you are experiencing discomfort on a tooth which has previously undergone a root canal, our Duluth dentist is able to provide root canal retreatment. This procedure can involve removing the cap and filling material from your previous treatment, as well as any affected tissue, prolonging the health of that tooth and reinforcing your dental comfort.
