Root Canal

Root canal therapy is needed when the nerve of a tooth is affected by decay or infection.  In order to save the tooth, the pulp (the living tissue inside the tooth), nerves, bacteria, and any decay are removed and the resulting space is filled with special, medicated, dental materials, which restore the tooth to its full function.

Root Canal

Root canal therapy becomes necessary when the inner nerve of a tooth becomes affected by decay or infection. When this happens, the tooth may become extremely sensitive to both pressure and temperature, and intense pain can be expected. In the initial stages of decay and infection, it is possible that no symptoms would be present. However, in the advanced stages of decay and infection an abscess (pimple-like inflammation on the gums) will form.

Root Canal

Root canal therapy is treatment used to repair and save a tooth that has been infected due to a deep cavity or cracked tooth. The treatment involves removing the pulp and the nerves of the tooth, and cleaning the infected area. A tooths pulp and nerve is not important to a tooths health and function after the tooth has fully emerged from the gums. If the treatment is not performed, pus builds up at the root tip and the infection of the pulp can spread to the surrounding bone. The results in pain and swelling, and your tooth would likely have to be removed.

Root Canal

Endodontics is the dental specialty that deals with the nerves of the teeth. Root canals are probably the most notorious procedure in dentistry and the most common procedure relating to endodontics. When a tooth becomes infected it is usually related to the nerves in the root of the tooth. The infected nerves need to be removed. If left untreated an infection can turn into an abscess, which is a much more serious problem that includes bone loss in the jaw.

Root Canal

Although root canal therapy frequently receives negative press, this conservative procedure can save a compromised tooth and revive your oral health. Root canal therapy is indicated when a tooth develops an infection, which can be due to dental decay, fracture, or other trauma to the tooth, causing the pulp tissue inside the tooth to die. When this happens, inflammation and pressure build inside the tooth. If left untreated, you risk potentially serious complications, such as an abscess, intense pain, or tooth loss.

Root Canal

Root canal therapy permits a patient to keep a tooth that would otherwise require extraction. The treatment is necessary when the pulp tissue inside the tooth becomes diseased and/or damaged. Frequently the therapy is called for because of dental decay that has reached the nerve, trauma or coronal cracks. During treatment, the dentist makes an opening in the top of the tooth and cleans the diseased or dead nerve tissue and bacteria from inside the root.

Root Canal



When a tooths nerve or pulp area becomes diseased or injured, a special dental procedure called root canal therapy may help save that tooth. If the diseased pulp is not removed, the tooth becomes infected and might need to be extracted. During a root canal, the dentist removes the pulp, cleans the root canal and seals the canal to protect it. Once healed, a crown is placed over the tooth to help make it stronger. Generally, a root canal is a relatively simple procedure with little or no discomfort.
