Teeth that are significantly infected or decayed may require root canal therapy. Root canal therapy is usually completed in just one or two appointments at the office of Dr. Jekel in Dallas. Dr. Jekel will often recommend root canal therapy or refer you to an endodontist to save teeth that would otherwise have to be extracted or pulled. Once the root canal therapy is complete, we may place a dental crown over the tooth for additional protection, function, and aesthetic appeal. To learn more about root canal therapy and restorative dentistry, we invite you to contact us soon.
