Root Canal

Root Canals in Winston-Salem, NC

At Kenneth R. Russell D.D.S., P.A., we offer root canal treatment to patients throughout Winston-Salem, NC and the nearby areas. Root canal treatment is required when the pulp of a tooth becomes inflamed or infected. This can happen due to deep decay, repeated dental procedures, faulty crowns, or a crack or chip in the tooth. If left untreated, patients can experience pain, or it can lead to an abscess. 

If you suspect you need a root canal, call our family dentist office today. We’ll determine what the best course of action is based on your X-ray results. If you need this treatment, Dr. Russell will remove the infected or inflamed pulp, with cleaning and disinfecting the inside of the tooth to immediately follow. Afterwards, the tooth will be restored with a crown or filling for protection from bacteria.
