Root Canal Therapy

Endodontic Treatments To Save Teeth

A root canal may be necessary to save a tooth that is cracked, broken, or extensively decayed or infected. When a tooth reaches this point, it is usually a painful situation. However, a root canal can both stop the pain and save your tooth.

During a root canal, the live tissue is removed from the interior of the tooth. This tissue includes nerves that carry pain signals. Next, he cleans the inner canal thoroughly and then seals the tooth. Finally, a restoration is placed so your tooth is protected and attractive.

Extraction is often the only alternative to a root canal, but a root canal allows you to keep your natural tooth. Also, modern root canal procedures are not painful.
