Root Canal Treatment – Westfield, MA

Save Your Tooth, Stop Your Pain

The innermost layer of the tooth is called the dental pulp. When the outer enamel is damaged, bacteria can infiltrate the pulp and cause an infection, which often results in extreme pain. When this happens, you might think that your only choice is to have the tooth removed. But with root canal treatment, we can let you keep your natural tooth while also putting a stop to the pain and preventing the infection from spreading further. Call us if you have a tooth that’s showing signs of an infection. Root canal treatment in Westfield could be just what your tooth needs.

What Happens During a Root Canal?

To perform a root canal, we need to create a small opening in your tooth. Then we can take out the pulp along with the bacteria that caused the infection. The pulp chamber and the canals inside the tooth are thoroughly cleaned and carefully refilled. A dental crown will usually be placed afterward to keep the tooth safe. Despite its reputation, root canal treatment isn’t an especially painful procedure; your mouth will be numbed to help you stay comfortable throughout the treatment.
