Lansing Root Canals
Preserve your tooth with root canal therapy from Dr. Hagerty.
Do you have a toothache that won’t go away? You may have a tooth infection, which occurs when harmful bacteria work their way into the layers of your precious tooth enamel. As decay begins, your body uses pain to alert you to the damage. If you have a constant ache, call Hagerty Dentistry immediately. We may be able to heal the area and preserve your tooth with beneficial root canal therapy.
Dr. Hagerty uses advanced techniques to make root canal therapy a positive, comfortable experience and to potentially save teeth from extraction. When the canals that lead from the tooth pulp, or nerve, sustain damage from a deep cavity, fracture, or other trauma, infection may occur.
During a root canal, Dr. Hagerty will go deep into the tooth to the source of infection. By flushing out the germs, applying a simple antibiotic, and filling the enamel with tooth-colored resin, our Lansing team can repair your tooth. Root canals are a routine procedure that our Lansing team is very practiced at performing, so you can rest assured that your safety is our top priority at all times during this service. If you choose to go without root canal therapy, the infection will spread and may result in a necessary extraction. Dr. Hagerty is dedicated to helping you retain your natural tooth as he works to heal the area.
