Root Canal Therapy
Root canals are preformed when a patient has a cavity or infection that has reached the nerve of the tooth. It is a method of saving the tooth so that it doesn’t need to be extracted. After the infected pulp is removed, the inside of the tooth is disinfected to eliminate bacteria, the tooth is then restored with a crown or filling. Root canals are a more comfortable procedure than most patients expect, and they provide relief from severe tooth pain.
