Root Canal Treatment

Dr. Macks routinely performs Root Canal Therapy in his Tacoma office. Root Canal Therapy is necessary when decay has killed a tooth or is likely to in the future. Call us today to learn more about our root canal treatment services.

If the painful infection in the pulp of the tooth isn’t addressed, it will more than likely spread to other teeth, causing further damage. Root canal therapy can also be used to treat infections that have developed into an abscessed tooth.

As Dr. Macks removes the infected pulp, he will fill it with the necessary filling materials. He will discuss the pros/cons of each material. This will effectively treat or prevent further infection.

If you do have an infected tooth, bacteria from the mouth have the potential to enter the bloodstream and potentially cause other infections to different parts of your body.

Because the root canal removes the pulp from inside the tooth, it becomes more fragile and could potentially break if not covered up with a cap or crown. Dr. Macks and his staff will always walk you through our procedures and explain all your options before moving forward with treatment. Call us today to learn more about our root canal treatment services.

Absolutely the best team of dental experts around. I have been a patient of Dr. Macks since the late 1980s. I grind my teeth and have broken several, necessitating four implants. There can be a lot stress involved in such a dental history, but these folks make me feel right at home and well cared for no matter what issue I present. I'll never go anywhere else. I'm a life timer.

The best experience I’ve ever had. I have been to plenty of places for my Botox none of them compare to the experience I had. They were clean professional friendly 100% amazing

Wow! I had 10 root canals & lots of dental trauma before I gave up & got dentures... I only wore them when I had to, as despite many adjustments, they never fit, and made my mouth's roof & gums terribly sore, for years... Then a friend told me to see Dr.Machs. His education, background, & range of experience are stunning (I don't stun, as a rule...). As an RN, I didn't believe this Ievel of thorough evaluation, information, & genuine care was possible in this life. I can't recommend him and the staff highly enough.
