Root Canal Therapy in Cary

An Effective Tooth-Saving Option

Root canals” are one of the first things patients associate with the negative side of dentistry, and that doesn’t have to be the case.

Endodontics (Root Canal Therapy) is a valuable dental treatment option in Cary that is meant to remove the harmful parts of the tooth and save the original structure and integrity of the tissue surrounding it.

At Cary Family Dental, our focus has always been on providing our patients with advanced, personalized dentistry in a comfortable environment, and that commitment is never more important than with our root canal treatments.

Dr. Patel and his team will evaluate the current status of your affected tooth and see if root canal therapy is the right choice for getting you out of pain and back to living your life.

About Root Canal Treatment

If Dr. Niraj Patel decides a root canal is in your best interest, then you can feel assured knowing you’ll understand every step of the treatment process.

He gently and effectively removes the damaged pulp inside of your tooth before cleaning and disinfecting the affected area.

The final step is a new filling or custom dental crown that we can create for you during the same office visit thanks to our advanced CEREC same-day crown technology.

Signs You Might Need Help

The first sign that you might need a root canal is extreme pain.

This usually occurs when damage gets down deep below your tooth enamel. Be aware of any dull aches or even sharp, nagging pain.

Finding out if you need a root canal in Cary or will benefit from endodontics, can be tricky for some patients too, because there could be no symptoms or signs of any kind.

Always be on the lookout for any tenderness, swelling, darkening of your teeth, or increased sensitivity.
