Root Canal Therapy


Root Canal Therapy in Newark, Ohio

When decay or infection develops or spreads inside a tooth, a root canal also known as endodontic therapy is often performed to repair it and keep the tooth from dying and having to be removed.

With root canal treatment, Newark Dental Associates saves the tooth by cleaning out the damaged areas and surrounding decay and then filling the space to restore the tooth to its full use.

Root Canals have a bad reputation for being painful in the past but thanks to advances in modern dental anesthesia this could not be further from the truth. Our expert dentists make sure that you are fully numb before beginning the procedure. We utilize rubber dam isolation to prevent you from having to taste any of our materials as well as protect you from breathing in any old silver filling materials or decay we remove. The whole process is painless and comfortable.
