Revitilizing Teeth With Columbia Root Canal Therapy

However, severe damage or decay that’s allowed to reach the inner chambers of the tooth can lead to the possibility of extraction. Thankfully, Dr. Philip Batson offers a saving grace: root canal therapy. This treatment can completely revitalize the health and structure of an at-risk tooth and help patients from Columbia, Centralia, Ashland, Hallsville, Fulton, and beyond smile brighter.

The Procedure

If our Columbia, MO dental team discovers that root canal therapy is necessary to preserve a tooth, we can quickly make plans to provide the treatment. The process is simple – Dr. Batson will carefully access the inside of the tooth to remove diseased pulp and bacteria. After replacing it with a safe, biocompatible material, he’ll then seal the area to minimize the chance of further infection. Finally, a custom dental crown will rejuvenate the tooth’s structure.
