A root canal procedure is a dental procedure used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected. The procedure involves removing the nerve and the pulp from the center of the tooth, and then cleaning and sealing it. Located in the Arvada/Westminster area, Advanced Dental Arts provides comprehensive dental care including root canal procedures to patients in the greater Denver metropolitan area.
The “root canal” refers to the natural cavity in the middle of a tooth. The pulp or pulp chamber is the soft area within the root canal. The tooth’s nerve is located within the root canal. Tooth decay repeated dental procedures, large fillings, cracks, chips, and trauma to the face can cause a tooth’s nerve and pulp to become irritated, inflamed or infected. If left untreated, the tissue surrounding the tooth will become infected and abscesses may form.
At Advanced Dental Arts, patients receive restorative dental procedures in the comfort of our clean, contemporary office while enjoying amenities including Blu-Ray entertainment and noise canceling headphones. Dr. Randy Simon also offers sedation dentistry to keep our patients relaxed and comfortable during root canal procedures.
