Root canals are performed when a tooth’s inner nerve becomes infected or decayed. Many root canal procedures can be performed by our dentist in just one or two appointments at our Eugene, OR dental practice.

Once the root canal procedure is complete, the function of your tooth will be restored. In most cases, Dr. Rust will place a crown over the treated tooth in order to protect the tooth from any additional harm. Root canal therapy is a convenient and effective treatment option, allowing you to keep the tooth without causing harm to any of the surrounding teeth.
