Root canal treatment


Root canal treatment

Root canals are one of the most commonly performed dental procedures each year because they save natural teeth and avoid the use of dental implants or bridges.

A root canal is performed to repair a severely injured, cracked or decayed tooth and when its pulp (the tissue inside a tooth) becomes inflamed or infected. Root canals are usually performed in one or two office visits, depending on the severity of the condition and the treatment plan that will be decided with you.

During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed. Without this treatment, the tissues surrounding the tooth can become infected and lead to abscess formation. After restoration, and with good oral hygiene habits, the tooth will continue to function normally and has the potential to last a lifetime.
