Root Canals in Brookfield
When a tooth's nerve becomes irreparably damaged, it can die, which kills the tooth and can pose a serious risk for infection. In some cases, patients can avoid the hassle and expense of tooth extraction and a prosthetic by undergoing root canal therapy. Modern tools, techniques, and anesthesia make root canals more comfortable and effective than ever. Dr. Brunner, Dr. Taibl, Dr. Tack, and Dr. McGinn can often perform a root canal in just one visit.
The procedure involves removing damaged pulp from within the tooth’s root canals. The pulp is another name for the nerve. We then fill the canals with a man-made substance to prevent infection. Usually, we then crown the tooth to protect it from external damage and finish the procedure. Rest assured, if you visit Elmbrook Family Dental for root canal therapy, we will make sure that you are comfortable during the entire procedure.
