Root Canal Therapy – Charlottesville, VA

Save Your Teeth, Despite Oral Infection

When an oral infection is detected inside of the inner tooth, also known as the pulp, dentists of the past would often need to extract the tooth outright. For Dr. Lippard, removing teeth is the absolute last resort. That’s why he recommends root canal therapy to save teeth. Not only is treatment incredibly effective, but it is no more uncomfortable then receiving a dental filling. Call his office today to schedule an appointment and end your oral discomfort for good!

Why Choose Hal M. Lippard, DDS for Root Canal Therapy?

Do I Need a Root Canal?

While the best way to confirm if you need a root canal is to visit our office for a detailed exam, you may need a root canal if you notice moderate to severe pain in your tooth or teeth. If it is very difficult to chew or you notice pimple-like bumps on your gum tissue, it’s possible that an oral infection has developed. Your tooth may also darken in color, and, as with any infection, you may experience a high fever.
