When a tooth is infected and decay has reached the central nerves of a tooth, the resulting pain can be unbearable. Pristine Dental proudly offers root canal therapy (RCT) to bring you out of pain and save your infected tooth. Dr. Noh is an experienced and gentle dentist who is known for his expertise in restorative, cosmetic and general dentistry. We do everything we can to keep your smile comfortable and your teeth and gums healthy for life. All of our general dentistry services are performed using the latest technology and technique in modern dentistry. This allows for faster, safer and more comfortable treatments for our valued patients.
A cavity or area of decay that is not treated can penetrate the deeper layers of the tooth beyond the enamel. Once it reaches the heart of the tooth (the pulp), the nerve chamber is impacted. This can create significant pain and tooth sensitivity. At this point, the tooth needs a root canal in order to eradicate the harmful bacteria, clean the tooth center, fill it and seal it off against future infection. Neglecting your infected tooth will not only lead to worsening pain, but it can also cause a dental abscess and even surrounding bone loss.
Root Canals Are Not Painful - Infected Teeth Are Painful!
Although root canal therapy is often associated with pain or dread, it is actually a highly effective dental procedure that is typically no more uncomfortable than getting a filling. In fact, root canal therapy may be the only solution to bring you out of pain while also helping you avoid a tooth extraction.

Regardless of your treatment choice, you can trust that you will be served with exceptional, patient-centered care throughout your visit.
