Root Canals

Root canal treatment is usually recommended to restore a significantly damaged or decayed tooth. Unlike the other option, extraction, a root canal will allow us to save the natural tooth and will not require replacement. Dr. Throckmorton may recommend root canal treatment to restore a tooth that has:

  • Significant trauma or injury
  • An infection or abscess
  • Decay inside the pulp

Root canals typically require just two visits to Ocean Atlantic Dental in Virginia Beach. Thanks to the advancements in modern dental technology, a root canal is a comfortable procedure that shouldn’t cause you any worry or anxiety.
