TV and movies would have you believe that root canal therapy is some type of torture, but thanks to the newest dental techniques and analgesics, most of Dr. Sepe’s patients describe feeling practically nothing while in the chair. This procedure is used to treat teeth that have developed an infection or damage in their dental pulp, or inner nerve. The pulp is simply removed, the tooth is cleaned, and then it’s filled and topped with a restoration. This will quickly stop any discomfort and allow the tooth to function like normal for years to come.
