Root Canal Treatment

Root Canal
Root Canal therapy is the treatment of choice to cure infections and save the tooth. By preserving the tooth, root canal therapy can prevent the problems to adjacent teeth that extraction (tooth removal) can cause, helping to maintain dental health and saving money in the long run. Modern root canal treatment can usually be performed with little or no discomfort. By removing the inflamed or damaged tissue, a root canal procedure can put an end to pain and help prevent serious complications such as jaw infections. Root canal therapy is highly successful and usually lasts for the life of the tooth. Additional treatment such as crowns is occasionally necessary. Indications that Root Canal Therapy may be necessary:
  • Severe toothache
  • An abscess (or pimple) on the gums
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold
  • Swelling and/or tenderness
Reasons for Root Canal Therapy:
  • Decay is affecting the tooth’s pulp.
  • An abscess or infection has developed at the root or inside the tooth.
  • Injury or trauma has caused the pulp to die, risking infection.
