Root Canals

Root canal treatment is a treatment that focuses on repairing and removing decay to the inner portion of your tooth, which holds your tooth nerves. When the nerve is exposed to decay, it can easily become infected, causing severe pain, the eventual death of the tooth, and possibly a dental abscess. Root canals have a better prognosis and the tooth has a better outcome the sooner an infected tooth is treated.

During a root canal treatment, all decayed nerve is removed from the inside of the tooth and your root canal system is cleaned out. The inside of your tooth is filled with gutta-percha, a medicinal rubber material, and the tooth is then sealed with a filling or crown.
