Endodontics, more commonly known as root canal therapy or a root canal procedure, can relieve the pain caused by diseased or injured pulp tissue in the center of the tooth. Many times, this tissue cannot repair itself and root canal therapy is required to save the tooth. Our endodontists in Owings Mills can help relieve the pain save the tooth before it's too late. After a well-performed root canal treatment, you should have no lasting pain or sensitivity in the tooth and with good oral hygiene, the tooth should last for years. With most patients, we use local anesthetics that will make your treatment as comfortable as possible. If you are experiencing tooth pain, please make an appointment as soon as possible.
