Root Canal Therapy

Keep your natural teeth, improve oral function, and live a healthy life

Natural wear and tear on teeth over time can lead to decay, and other damage such as cracking and breaking. A root canal can salvage the remaining healthy structure instead of removing and replacing it completely.

Root Canal Treatment, Braintree MA

Root canal therapy is used for patients with unhealthy tooth roots to eradicate infection and seal off the area, providing future protection.

At Allen Dental Associates, our highly trained professionals use the most advanced techniques and technology to safely and effectively treat deep decay and prevent further damage through root canal therapy. Your root canal with us will be:

  • Safe and long-lasting
  • Done using the most advanced techniques and innovative equipment
  • Done with your comfort and health as our top priorities

When the pulp of a tooth becomes infected or inflamed, root canal therapy is necessary to restore health and function to the affected area. Without a root canal, this inflammation or infection can lead to deep decay and further oral complications. A root canal is completed by making a small opening in the pulp chamber of the tooth before cleaning that area and filling it with a biocompatible material and specialized cement to ensure the sealing of the chamber. Once completed, the treated tooth will function normally and healthily for years.
