Root Canal

Root Canals in Greenville, NC

Experienced Greenville Dentist

If you are experiencing throbbing tooth or jaw pain, you may need a root canal. A healthy tooth contains soft tissue at the center, filled with blood vessels and nerves. However, if this soft tissue becomes infected, the root of the tooth may need to be cleaned in order to remove the infection. If you are experiencing tooth pain and think you may require a root canal, our Greenville NC dentistry team can help.

At Bowman, Padgett and Associates, our full-service dental practice can address your oral hygiene needs. Our dentists have more than 50 years of combined experience treating patients in the Greenville area, and we are confident that we can help you as well. We understand that not everyone looks forward to dental visits, which is why we put patient comfort first and create dental plans tailored to your specific needs.

About Root Canal Procedures

When a tooth becomes diseased or infected in the pulp, or the soft tissue, at the center of the tooth, a root canal may be required. Alternatively, the root may be extracted, but this may cause the surrounding teeth to shift and can lead to problems with chewing or biting. Rather than removing the tooth, dentists can perform a root canal to remove the infected parts of the tooth.

Your dentist will begin by creating an access point to the infected root canals. Next, the root canal will be cleaned and shaped and any infected areas will be removed. The area will then be sealed and filled with a safe dental material. The tooth will then be capped with a permanent crown to protect the filling.
