What is a Root Canal?Owings Mills DentistRoot canal therapy is used for restoring a tooth that has experienced deep decay or trauma. Root canal therapy can save a tooth that may otherwise need to be removed. During a root canal, the exposed or infected pulp is removed and disinfected. Once the tooth is treated, it is covered with a crown for protection and strength.In most instances, you will experience little to no pain and will be able to enjoy your restored tooth for years to come.Dr. Rief is very experienced in root canal therapy.
