Root canal treatment works for patients near me in Waterford Twp, MI area


Metropolitan Dental Center explains how root canal treatment works for patients in Waterford, MI
Dr. Jeffrey Ingber of Metropolitan Dental Center is proud to offer a wide variety of services for improving patients’ oral health and wellness. In many cases, patients who are searching for a dentist “near me” who provides treatments such as root canal therapy will find their way to our practice for solutions.

What is root canal therapy?

This procedure, sometimes referred to as endodontic therapy, is a treatment for an infected or diseased tooth. During the process, the dentist removes the dental pulp and disinfects the canals of the tooth. It is sealed with gutta percha and composite resin, and often covered with a dental crown. The process can be done in just one appointment with the crown being placed at a future visit.

Why root canal therapy?

Without root canal therapy, the only option to eliminate the pain is to extract the tooth. Instead, patients can undergo this procedure and keep the tooth in place and reduce the overall cost of treatment. It eliminates the need for:
  • Dentures
  • Bridges
  • Implants
These are restorations that are used to replace teeth after extraction.

Does root canal therapy work?

Yes! This procedure is extremely successful for most of our patients and keeps them from requiring removal and restoration of the tooth. Dr. Jeffrey Ingber consults with individuals to determine if this is the best way to move forward with repairing the smile following disease or infection of a natural tooth.

Who is a candidate for root canal therapy?

Any patient experiencing disease or infection inside of a tooth may require this procedure to eliminate pain. The procedure removes the dental pulp, which includes the nerves that send pain signals to the brain. The procedure essentially deadens the tooth, yet keeps it in place.
