Receive root canal therapy in Las Vegas without having to visit an endodontics specialty practice

Endodontics Specialty Las Vegas - Specialist Dentist

Endodontics is a specialty in dentistry that focuses on diseases of the dental pulp and treating them, usually with root canal therapy. However, patients in Las Vegas don’t have to see a specialist, they can visit Dr. Christopher Lim for root canal therapy.

What is a “root canal?”

A root canal, which is medically known as “root canal therapy,” is an endodontic treatment that is performed to save a tooth that is broken, infected, or diseased. Root canal therapy is performed right in the dental office at Hillside Dental. While many patients fear root canal therapy, it is nothing to fear. Patients are properly anesthetized and sedated if needed for the procedure and will not experience any pain during it.

The process of root canal therapy

During root canal therapy, an endodontics dentist will access the inner portion of the tooth through a very small opening created with specialty tools. Through this opening, the dentist will remove the dental pulp, the mass of tissues inside the tooth, and disinfect the inner canals. Then the tooth is sealed off and many times, a dental crown is placed over it to give it an extra layer of protection against further damage. This is a routine, effective procedure to save teeth that would otherwise be extracted.
