Root Canal Therapy

The root canal is a passage in the root of every tooth that supplies nerves and blood vessels to the pulp cavity within the tooth. Proper oral care and hygiene will help to keep the root canals in your mouth strong and functioning ideally; however, inadequate care or an injury in which part of a tooth is broken can result in a root canal infection. When this happens, the only way to preserve the affected tooth is through root canal therapy. In this procedure, the infected tissue in the tooth is carefully removed and replaced with an inert filling material. After undergoing root canal therapy, a patient usually receives a crown on his or her treated tooth to provide it with a natural appearance and restored structural integrity.

Root canal therapy helps to eliminate the pain and sensitivity brought on by an infected root canal. It also helps a person avoid the need for extensive treatment later on by preventing infected teeth from falling out. If you are experiencing pain or sensitivity in one or more of your teeth, contact us today to find out if this procedure is the answer to returning strength and health to your smile.
