When a tooth is damaged or infected, root canal therapy is an excellent option to restore oral health. Root canal therapy is a wonderful alternative to tooth extraction that allows our skilled and experienced dentists, Dr. Nicole Holmes and Dr. Dan Holmes, to save your original tooth from removal. When you can retain your natural teeth, you will benefit from better oral health over your lifetime. We may suggest root canal therapy if a tooth is affected by:

  • An abscess or infection
  • Severe injury or trauma
  • Decayed dental pulp
  • Painfully sensitive teeth

Root canal therapy involves removing the decayed, damaged, or infected part of the tooth, which is the soft dental pulp inside that consists of blood vessels, connective tissues, and nerves. After our dentists fill in the remaining tooth structure, we will cap the tooth with a dental crown for protection. When we perform this procedure, we will protect your overall dental health and save your tooth. Our friendly dental team is committed to ensuring that your root canal in Fort Collins, Colorado, is a pleasant and comfortable dental experience. We welcome you to call Holmes Dental today to schedule your consultation. We look forward to caring for you!
