Smile Gallery: Root Canal Therapy

What Is Root Canal Therapy? 

When the innermost part of a tooth, known as the pulp, becomes infected, a root canal is necessary to heal it. During this procedure, Dr. Buxton removes the infected pulp and any damaged nerves leaving a cleaned out tooth cavity. Following this, the tooth is filled and sealed with either a dental filling or crown depending on the specific case.

A Great Dentist

I have been a patient of Dr. McGarr's for many years. One of his very nervous patients, I might add. He and his staff always try to make me feel calmer, and it usually works!

I have seen Dr. Buxton on a few emergency situations, and he is also a great dentist and very efficient. I have recommended this office to friends and they have been very happy too!
