A root canal is an endodontic procedure that removes the infected pulp of a tooth. This procedure can save your tooth and allow you to use your tooth with normal function. Root canal therapy and treatment can relieve dental pain while simultaneously saving your tooth. During a root canal treatment, your dentist will carefully remove the pulp inside the tooth, clean and disinfect the root canals of the tooth, and place a filling to seal the space.
Dr. Cooperman understands that dental services, including complex treatments like root canal therapy, can often be stress provoking. At Dental Ben’s in Peoria, we are dedicated to our patients and their comfort. We utilize a comfortable form of anesthesia that makes injections practically impossible to feel and have nitrous oxide available on request to help our patients relax during dental procedures.
