Root Canal Therapy

rootcanalFinding a dentist in that you can trust to take care of your teeth is a tough decision, especially when it involves root canal therapy. Stop spending your time worrying in pain, and turn to the dental office that has provided Triangle-area patients with exceptional root canal treatments for years: Royal Oak Dental Group.

If you are currently dealing with a badly decayed or infected tooth, our dentists can perform root canal therapy (also referred to as endodontic treatment) that can restore both the structure and function of the damaged tooth.

Dealing with intense tooth pain? We can provide you the emergency dental treatment you need to function pain-free.


 When is a Root Canal Needed?

When a tooth decays, breaks, or is otherwise damaged, your tooth’s nerve can become exposed, making it susceptible to infections and causing your tooth to become abscessed. During root canal therapy, the tooth’s nerve tissue is removed, thus preventing it from becoming infected by bacteria, which can be very painful and damaging to the tooth.

If you think that you could benefit from endodontic treatment, contact us today at (919) 847-5283 (Raleigh office) or (919) 468-4211 (Cary office) or (919)969-6211 (Chapel Hill) or (919) 742-2392 (Siler City office). We would be happy to set up a consultation to help you get to the root of your tooth problem.

We are proud to serve patients in the Raleigh-Cary-Chapel Hill-Siler City area, including Apex, Carrboro, Pittsboro, Hillsboro, Durham, Morrisville, North Raleigh, Garner, Wake Forest and Knightdale.



Royal Oak Dental Group is proud to provide a full scope of dental health services to patients from Raleigh, Cary, Siler City, Chapel Hill, Durham, North Hills, Wake Forest, Garner, Apex, Holly Springs, Fuquay-Varina, Knightdale, Wendell and Morrisville, NC, as well as the greater Triangle area.

Dear Patient:
We hope this message finds you safe and healthy as we all collectively do our best to navigate the COVID-19 health crisis. Thank you for your patience and understanding throughout these challenging times. Because the health and safety of our patients and community is paramount, it has been necessary to limit our patient care to urgent and emergency care over these last few months.

As we have closely followed recommendations from the North Carolina Dental Board, CDC, and other reputable health organizations, we recognize the importance of regional-specific guidance based on the most comprehensive, accurate, and current scientific literature and data available. While community guidelines may continue to evolve, we must continue to make our treatment decisions based on the best knowledge available. It is our job to help improve the health of our patients by approaching comprehensive dental treatment PROACTIVELY, not just reacting after the compromise has become irreversible in nature.

With this in mind, we have made the decision to safely reopen our doors to ALL PATIENTS beginning Monday, May 11th. This means routine dental care, such as cleanings and simple restorations, will resume. When you come to our office you will notice the following elevated measures and precautions that we believe are necessary to maintain until we emerge from this COVID-19 environment (and likely thereafter):  

  • Sanitation stations in the front desk/waiting area
  • Anti-microbial Hydrogen Peroxide mouth rinses before the start of each appointment
  • Hi-Evacuation suction for hygiene appointments to minimize cavitron-related aerosols
  • Patient entrance doors will remain open to reduce contact 
  • Mandatory pre-screening questionnaire over the phone when appointments are confirmed and upon arrival to the office, in addition to temperature checks of ALL STAFF and PATIENTS
  • Patients will wait in their vehicles until their appointment begins
  • Limited access to patient waiting areas and operatories whenever possible (e.g. restricted to patients, parents of young children, translators, service animals, special needs assistance, etc.)
  • Enhanced social distancing measures throughout the office 

This is not the first crisis that we have endured as a state or as a nation, and we look forward to overcoming this event better, stronger and more resilient than ever before. We cannot thank you enough for trusting us with your oral health. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any questions or concerns, and let us know if there is anything we can do to better serve you.
