What is Root Canal Therapy?

A root canal is simply the inner portion of the tooth root where soft pulp and nerves are housed. During a root canal, the dentist removes the infected pulp and nerve, refills the tooth, and places a dental crown to support and protect the damaged tooth. While the irritated dental nerve causes severe pain, root canal therapy provides immediate relief.

About Root Canal Therapy

Do you have a dental problem and need assistance from a root canal dentist? A root canal is typically performed on a tooth that is severely infected. Under normal circumstances, root canals start off as cavities that were not properly treated thus causing an infection to progress into the nerve. Learn more about our Root Canal Therapy services & procedures in this article with treatment and other tips.

Serious consequences can result from avoiding a root canal:

  • Severe pain
  • Decay
  • Infection within the tooth
  • Infection spreading to other teeth
  • Teeth falling out
  • Necessary tooth extractions

When Should I Seek Treatment?

In some cases, when a patient is suffering from pain, it may be too late for a root canal. Treatment should take place before any major pain occurs. If this is the situation, the extraction of the tooth may be imperative to avoid further infection and damage.
