Root canal treatment is designed to eliminate bacteria from the infected root canal, prevent reinfection of the tooth and save the natural tooth. When you have a root canal, the inflammation or infected pulp is removed, the tooth is cleaned and disinfected, and then filled and sealed to save the tooth.

With the new technology and techniques that we use at Angstadt Family Dental, we are able to help our patients receive pain-free root canal treatment and minimal soreness after the root canal procedure. Always follow the instructions given after a root canal and take the medication prescribed by one of our doctors for the best healing possible.
It must always be remembered that permanent restorations are almost always necessary with a root canal treated tooth to restore strength and function after root canal therapy. Our doctor will always discuss the best option for the patient and recommend it, typically a filling or crown.
“Normally root canal and great experience do not belong in the same sentence. However, Dr. Angstadt is extremely knowledgeable and everything he does is perfectly precise. The staff is friendly and accommodating. I have had dental work at other places, but the superior care, assurance of quality and precision is something I have never experienced anywhere other than at Wyomissing Dental.”
