If a tooth is significantly damaged or infected, root canal therapy can effectively restore its function and structure and prevent the need for tooth extraction. Root canal therapy can improve the health, function, and beauty of your smile, and can prevent infection from spreading to other areas of the mouth. During the treatment, your skilled dentist will remove the damaged or infected tooth pulp, fill in the tooth, and cap the tooth with a dental crown to protect it and restore its shape and function. At Dr. Bruce Crowley’s office, Dr. Crowley and our friendly dental team will ensure that your root canal therapy is a painless and comfortable dental experience. If you are experiencing tooth pain or swelling of the gums or face, you may benefit from root canal therapy. We encourage you to call or visit our dental office in Las Vegas, Nevada to begin improving your oral health!
