We offer Root Canal Therapy for patients that have non-vital or fractured teeth that have pulp exposure. When a pet has a broken or non-vital tooth, it can be really painful and cannot be left or watched because we know that the infection happens under the gumline and we would not be able to see a change to the tooth with the naked eye. Root Canal Therapy is where we use a very special process in order to save the tooth and keep it functional. We clean out the pulp cavity and disinfect it, fill it with a material to save it, and restore the surface of the tooth. There are many advantages of a Root Canal compared to an extraction and they include:
- Minimal pain and discomfort post operatively
- The tooth remains functional
- Lower risk of surgical complications
Please give us a call to discuss this option for your pet!
