Root Canal Therapy - Endodontics

Root canal therapy replaces infected pulp in a tooth's root canal.

Root canal therapy is not the painful treatment everyone believes it is. Root canals are similar to having a cavity filled, producing minimal pain. More importantly, a root canal can make your tooth function normally again.

Tooth Root Problems & Symptoms

  • Inflamed / Infected Tooth Pulp
  • Severe sensitivity to hot and cold elements
  • Chipped or broken tooth
  • Trauma or blow to the tooth (which can darken the tooth)
  • Swelling or tenderness near the infected tooth
  • Repeated dental procedures on a tooth

Please contact Virginia Dental Center for an evaluation if you experience any of these symptoms.

  • A dental experience like no other! This office is clean, modern, high tech, and has friendly staff and knowledgeable dentists. First off, they conveniently text you (aside from calling and emailing) to remind you of your visit. When you get there, you fill out your paperwork via an ipad - this was new and different for me. The waiting room is cozy with coffee, tea, and water at your leisure. And I barely had to wait. I was seen within two minutes. In the actual dental room, you can watch TV, and not basic cable, I'm talking every channel from ESPN to HGTV. This place has made me change my view about dental offices - I wouldn't mind going back!
