Root Canals

A root canal, also known as an endodontic treatment, is a dental procedure that repairs a damaged or infected tooth instead of removing it. The procedure involved removing the infected pulp and nerve from the root of the tooth, cleaning and shaping the root canal using special dental files, and then filling and sealing the space.

After the root canal is completed, a crown will be made to fit the tooth to protect the tooth and restore its strength and function.

Root canals have a bad reputation of causing pain, but if the tooth is treated prior to the infection getting out of control, there is little to no pain after the procedure.
