Root Canal Therapy

Root Canal Therapy is a simple treatment that can eliminate pain and save your natural teeth:

    Root Canal
  • Infection of a tooth pulp can be caused by trauma, deep decay, cracks and chips, or repeated dental procedures. Symptoms of the infection can be identified as visible injury or swelling, sensitivity to temperature, or pain in the tooth and gums.

A root canal or endodontic therapy is required to treat the tissue inside the tooth and eliminate infection that has reached the pulp of the tooth.

  • Root canal treatment generally involves the removal and replacement of a tooth’s nerve.
  • Without treatment infection will spread, bone around the tooth will begin to break down, and the tooth may become loose, which can be very painful. The pain will usually worsen until you are forced to seek emergency dental attention.

Following a root canal procedure, a Crown is recommended to protect the tooth from breakage.

The only alternative to a root canal procedure is usually an extraction of the tooth, which can cause surrounding teeth to shift, resulting in a collapsed bite. Though an extraction is less costly, the space left behind will require an implant or a bridge, which can be more expensive than root canal therapy.
