Root Canal Treatment – Albuquerque, NM

We Can Protect & Preserve Natural Teeth

Our teeth have three layers. The innermost layer contains the pulpy material that makes up the tooth’s nerve. Sometimes, because of a deep cavity or an injury, bacteria can get inside this layer and cause an infection that kills the pulp, stimulates blood flow, and creates pressure inside the tooth. If left untreated, you may need to have your infected tooth extracted. However, if treated quickly with root canal treatment in Albuquerque , your tooth can be saved instead. Call our dental office today if you suspect you may be suffering from a severely infected tooth that requires root canal treatment.

The Root Canal Process

Before the process is to begin, we will make sure you are calm and comfortable. Administering local anesthesia and sedation dentistry, if necessary, we will wait until you are in a more relaxed state before starting.

During a root canal, Dr. Boehmer will create an opening in the crown of the tooth before removing your nerve and any trace of infection from inside the tooth. Once the tooth is thoroughly sanitized, and bacteria are removed, she will fill the area with a safe, biocompatible substance and cover it with a protective crown that restores your tooth’s structure, strength, and appearance.

Are you experiencing a severe toothache, sensitivity to hot or cold foods and drinks, or swelling/tenderness? Let us evaluate your situation and make a treatment recommendation. A root canal may be what you need to enjoy good oral health and well-being again.
