Root Canal Treatment
Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic treatment, is a dental procedure in which the diseased or damaged nerve of a tooth is removed so that the tooth can be saved or restored.
We perform root canals to prevent tooth extraction when the inner soft tissue of a tooth becomes damaged, infected, or inflamed. Once we remove the damaged tissue, we carefully fill the canal, seal it and crown it to protect the tooth and restore its functionality. Signs you may need endodontic treatment include pain, prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold, tenderness to touch and chewing, and discoloration of the tooth.
