Root Canals

Perhaps the two most infamous words in the English language, the “root canal” is nothing to fear! Modern anesthetics and methods have made root canal therapy more comfortable and long-lasting than ever before. Dr. Williams regularly performs root canals at our Simsbury office, often in just one visit.

A root canal is a procedure in which the dentist cleans out the canals inside the tooth’s roots. Tooth roots can fill with bacteria due to a large crack or extensive decay. When the root becomes infected, the tooth can often be saved with this conservative treatment.

Root canals are meant to relieve pain, not cause it. By cleaning out the diseased area and sealing the tooth to prevent further infection, Dr. Williams relieves the source of pain and saves the tooth from extraction. Once topped with a crown, the tooth can serve you for the rest of your lifetime.
