Endodontics (Root Canal Treatment)


This is a procedure used to save an abscessed tooth in which the pulp chamber is cleaned out, disinfected, and filled with a permanent filling.  This can often relieve the pain caused by an infected tooth.  After the root canal is finished Dr. Arnold often restores the tooth using various procedures, depending on the individual need of the patient. The tooth is either restored with a filling, a crown, or a post and core and crown.
