In pets, root canal therapy is usually reserved for teeth that are essential for chewing or jaw support. In over-simplified terms, a root canal begins with a small hole being drilled into the central core of the tooth. The living center of the tooth, called the pulp, is removed and replaced with a substance called gutta-percha. The procedure results in a non-painful tooth resistant to infection.
Clayton Animal Hospital is fortunate to have three veterinarians with experience performing root canal procedures: Dr. Stacey Beam, Dr. Kelly Camacho and Dr. Christina Holzer.
