A Safe, Conservative Approach to a Root Canal

Many dental procedures come with a preconceived stigma. Root canals are one of these procedures. Most people think of severe pain and drilling when they think of a root canal, but I’m happy to tell you that modern root canal therapy is extremely different than it was in years past.

I’m Dr. Robert Kennedy, a general dentist in Bedford, Massachusetts, and I perform root canals on my patients in the most conservative way possible.

A root canal is an endodontic procedure. This means that it has to do with the internal structure of your tooth. You have a canal in each of your teeth. Your nerve, also known as pulp, is located in this canal and sustains the life of your tooth.
