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.

  • I've been a patient here since it opened and always been pleased with the service. I've had a few cavities filled, as well as a tooth reconstruction and had no problems. I also got a mouth guard from here that has helped me sleep better at night. I really like the new and modern facilities and equipment. This practice has embraced technology and electronic medical records. When you check in, you don't have to fill out paperwork, they hand you an iPad. There are TVs available to watch while you are having your teeth worked on, which is a nice distraction. Overall, the staff is courteous and friendly. I have recommended this practice to several friends already and would encourage anyone looking for a dentist to check them out!
