Root Canal

Root Canal in Bowling Green, KY

A root canal is a minimally invasive, nonsurgical endodontic treatment. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia and involves opening the crown of the tooth, exposing the roots and pulp of the tooth. When the pulp and root are exposed the infected areas of the tooth are removed.

A root canal is a simple non-surgical procedure performed over 14 million times every year to repair damaged or infected teeth. It can save your natural teeth, reduce pain, and even improve your overall health. The procedure, typically performed under local anesthesia, involves accessing the interior of a tooth and removing the infected or problematic areas. The average procedure lasts just 30-60 minutes, and the recovery typically takes less than a week. At Westen Dental Group we understand how painful and disruptive untreated dental problems can be, so if you find yourself in need of a root canal, rest assured that our team of compassionate professionals will work with you to make certain your procedure and recovery are as painless and stress-free as is possible. Oral health is a key component to overall health, and we’re here to help you achieve and maintain a happy and healthy smile.
