Dr. Schulz and his highly-trained staff have performed hundreds of root canals and does everything possible to make the procedures as fast and comfortable as possible. From painless, controlled injections to motorized rotary instruments, our root canals are fast and pain-free.
Because Dr. Schulz has his own computerized CEREC milling facility, he can create custom crowns in just one visit using advanced CEREC technology. And that means fewer injections, less time in the dental chair, and more time for you to attend to the things that matter to you most.
Before recommending a root canal, we collect a thorough dental history and perform an examination including digital x-rays. This aids in the accurate diagnosis of any tooth that may need a root canal.
Our root canals are fast and comfortable and are often done in less than hour. Once you have healed, Dr. Schulz will make and place your permanent crown in a single visit, using CEREC technology.
A root canal is a procedure that is done to save a tooth that is badly damaged or infected. The pulp, or living part of the tooth, is made up of nerves and blood vessels. It is contained in the pulp chamber, a space inside center of the tooth, which holds the pulp and extends into roots. It becomes infected or dies for a number of reasons:
During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp are removed from the “canal” inside of the root, which is then cleaned, filled and sealed.
Sometimes, however, there may be no symptoms.
