Emergency Dentist in Arlington, VA

Dr. Hani Hanna offer root canals to remove infected and damaged tissue and restore your teeth.

Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic therapy, is a procedure that is recommended when the tooth pulp and nerves are infected or damaged. This can occur when there is decay or injury that goes beyond the outer enamel layer. If left untreated, this condition can lead to tooth death and may require extraction. To prevent extraction and restore the tooth’s health, our skilled dentist can extract the infected or injured tissue nestled inside the tooth, clean the tooth and fill it with a medicated substance. The newly clean tooth will then be finished and protected with a dental crown to restore a natural-looking shape and structure. Typically, this procedure is finished in one or two appointments at the office.

The process of root canal treatment is often associated with pain, but in reality, with the help of advanced tools, techniques and anesthesia, it can be completed with minimal discomfort. Our team of professionals, including our dentist, strive to ensure that your visit to our office is as comfortable and pleasant as possible. We encourage you to reach out to us if you have any remaining questions about root canal treatment.
