Endodontics/Root Canal Therapy

Endodontic therapy (root canal treatment) can be used to save significantly damaged teeth in certain situations. Unlike extraction of the tooth, which can result in costly restorations in the future, root canal therapy allows us to save the natural tooth without the need for a tooth replacement. Dr. Kenner may recommend root canal therapy to treat teeth that have:

  • Significant injury or trauma
  • Decay in the pulp
  • An infection or abscess

Root canals are always completed in one appointment at Kenner Dentistry in Florence. Thanks to local anesthetic and modern technology, root canal therapy is often a pain-free experience for patients. After the treatment is complete, Dr. Kenner will attach a custom dental crown to the tooth for protection and beauty. Call us today if you are experiencing any pain or discomfort in the mouth and we will do everything in our power to ensure that you return to optimal oral health and comfort as soon as possible.
