Are There Alternatives to Root Canal Treatment?

Root Canal

A root canal is a procedure in which a tooth damaged by decay, infection, or trauma is restored. During a root canal, the chamber of your tooth—which houses the tooth’s blood supply and nerves—is cleaned out and sealed with a biocompatible material, allowing you to keep your natural tooth and avoid an extraction.

While root canal therapy is considered a safe and effective way to retain a tooth that would otherwise need to be removed, some people want to consider all their options before making a decision. You have a few possibilities when it comes to alternatives to root canal treatment!

Awards & Recognition

We were excited to open our doors on May 1 for regular patient care.  We will continue to strive to provide a clean, safe and caring environment. You may notice a few differences when you arrive at our office, but they are part of the new protocol we have implemented.

 

IMPORTANT: rather than entering our office upon arrival, please call us first (703-815-0775) to let us know you’re here. You will be asked some screening questions over the phone, and then may enter our reception area where your temperature will be taken and hand sanitizer provided. Your shoes will also be lightly sprayed with disinfectant. You will then be escorted to a disinfected treatment room.

We are excited to welcome you back to our office!
