Dr. Lukawski does his own endodontics (root canals) in house. Root canal treatment is used to save teeth which would otherwise need to be removed.It is needed when the blood or nerve supply of the tooth (known as the pulp) is infected through decay or injury. This procedure is followed by a Crown, which you can view below. If you would like to see a video illustration of the procedure, please click the picture above.
If you have a damaged or unattractive tooth, a dental crown is a highly successful treatment that can protect, reinforce, and beautify that tooth.
