Root Canal Therapy

tooth-decayRoot canal treatment is a set of specialized procedures designed to treat problems of the soft pulp (nerve) tissue inside the tooth. While some mistakenly think of it as an unusually painful treatment, it’s actually one of the most effective ways of relieving some kinds of tooth pain. A root canal procedure becomes necessary when infection or inflammation develops in the pulp tissue of the tooth. In time, the pain may go away, but only temporarily. Without treatment the infection will not heal itself. It can lead to a dental abscess, and may even contribute to systemic problems in other parts of the body! Our doctors strive to get you out of pain as soon as possible and will of course go over treatment options after diagnoses.
