Root Canals

When a tooth’s nerve incurs serious damage, a root canal may provide the only option to save the tooth from extraction. Dr. Petre has taken postgraduate courses in modern root canal therapy, and we offer anesthesia options to make the procedure comfortable and rewarding.

Dr. Petre performs accurate root canals in one appointment with an APEX locator. This high-tech device uses a light that identifies the canal better, so we can clear the dead or damaged root and create a strong healthy tooth. A root canal can save your natural tooth structure and is a conservative alternative to extraction. In addition, Dr. Petre will use the Waterlase laser to disinfect your tooth’s canal. All this is done more comfortably and quicker than ever before.
