Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected. During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed.
Without treatment, the tissue surrounding the tooth will become infected and abscesses may form. This can lead to a dental infection and pain. We always encourage regular dental checkups and cleanings to help prevent decay that sometimes can lead to the need for root canal therapy.
