Root Canal / Endodontics

A root canal can save a damaged tooth from extraction,  which in turn can prevent further complications and oral health issues. It allows you to avoid further pain and discomfort.

A root canal involves removing infected or inflamed tissue in the pulp. The pulp contains nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue that nourish and support the tooth. When the pulp becomes infected, it can causes intense pain. A root canal treatment involves removing this inflamed tissue, cleaning the canals, and then filing the area with a biocompatible material. The tooth is then restored with a filling or crown.
