What is a root canal?

Root canal treatment is procedure that is used to repair and save a tooth that has become infected.

The procedure involves removing the pulp and nerve tissue of a tooth, cleaning the tooth from the inside (the canals of the roots) and sealing the tooth. Without the treatment, the infected tooth may cause an abcess.

How do I know if I need a root canal?

Although sometimes there are no symptoms, often the symptoms are:

Pain (can be severe) Sensitivity to hot/cold/sweet Darkening of the tooth Swollen or tender gums around a tooth

Please contact our office for an appointment to determine whether or not you need a root canal or for more information.
