Root Canal Therapy in Gulf Breeze, FL

Prevent the Need for Extraction!

Endodontics is the area of dentistry centered on treating and protecting the dental pulp in your teeth. This innermost layer is filled with living connective tissue and the tooth’s nerves and is particularly sensitive when damaged. If you have a tooth with dental pulp that is damaged or infected, our dentist, Dr. Nisarg Parikh, can perform a root canal to save the tooth and prevent extraction.

What Is a Root Canal?

A root canal is a kind of endodontic therapy designed to save a decaying or damaged tooth without having to extract it. During a root canal treatment, our dentist and dental team remove infected tissues in the root of the tooth. We then carefully clean the tooth and fill it with medicated material to seal the tooth canals and fill the rest of the tooth. Once our tooth has been thoroughly cleaned, we will use a dental restoration, typically a dental crown, to cap your tooth and protect it from further damage.

Root canal treatments can be performed in only one or two visits and completed with little discomfort. Dr. Parikh and our team make it a priority to keep you as comfortable as possible during treatment.
