Dr. Suman Chibb and her professional dental team offer root canal treatment to patients in Owings Mills, Maryland. Root canal therapy is needed when the pulp found inside the root canal becomes infected. A large cavity or tooth damage can cause inflammation or infection that is removed by the root canal procedure.

Many people may think that the root canal procedure is painful; however, Dr. Chibb uses anesthetic during treatment to numb the area and ensure that pain is minimal. There are also multiple benefits to root canal treatment. Root canals are used as a preventative measure to keep tooth decay from spreading. In severe cases of tooth decay, teeth can fall out or require extraction. Root canal treatment helps patients keep their natural teeth for a healthier smile.
Root Canal Treatment
The root canal procedure is typically performed in just one visit to our office. Dr. Chibb will apply a local anesthetic to ensure your comfort during treatment. She will create a tiny hole in the back of the infected tooth so that she can remove the diseased tooth pulp. The tooth will then be thoroughly cleaned and filled with a biocompatible resin. The resin will help to stabilize the tooth and to seal out bacteria to help prevent future infection. You may also receive a dental crown to help stabilize the bite. Dental crowns are made from high-quality dental resin and are custom-designed to blend with the natural smile for a beautiful and durable result.
