San Rafael Root Canal Dentist

Root canals are performed to save your tooth by stopping the decay. When the root of a tooth becomes damaged from infection or injury, it can cause many problems. The infected root and surrounding pulp will literally begin to rot the tooth from within, and if no action is taken, the decay may worsen to the point that the tooth will die and will need to be extracted. It is essential to prevent the loss of your teeth, so if you are experiencing a toothache or pain of any kind, please contact Dr. Creaghe immediately.

As one of the top dentists in San Rafael, CA, he will quickly determine if a root canal, or another procedure, is necessary. During the root canal procedure, Dr. Creaghe drills through the surface of your tooth to expose the root, then extracts all the infected tissue.

Using a biocompatible material, the root canal is filled, and the entire tooth is capped with a porcelain crown that matches the color of your surrounding teeth. The tooth will then be pain free, and you will be able to chew normally.
