Root Canal Therapy


It takes a surprisingly small amount of damage to a tooth to allow the pulp to become infected. In addition to discomfort, an infected tooth can cause problems that can affect more than just your smile. If you have a painful or sensitive tooth, call Spring Dental at 617-328-0790 for your appointment with our dentists. Dr. Gursimran Sidhu or Dr. Ansh Desai and our team offer root canal therapy in North Quincy, Massachusetts.

Commonly called a root canal, root canal treatment is a type of endodontic therapy that is often recommended if the tooth pulp and nerves become infected or damaged. This may occur if injury or decay reaches deep into the tooth, past the outer enamel layer. When left untreated, this type of infection and disease may cause the tooth to die and necessitate tooth extraction. To restore the health of the tooth and avoid the need for extraction, our skilled dentists will remove the infected and injured tissues from within the tooth, clean the tooth and fill it with a medicated material. We will then cap the tooth with a restoration, such as a dental crown, to return the tooth to its original shape and structure. In most cases, a root canal can be completed in only one or two comfortable visits to our office.

Root canal treatment has a reputation for being a painful treatment. In reality, however, root canal treatment can often be completed with minimal discomfort thanks to advanced techniques, tools and anaesthesia. Our dentists and entire team work hard to provide you with a pleasant and comfortable experience each time you visit our office. To learn more about root canal treatment, we welcome you to contact us today. We are committed to restoring your smile’s health.
