Commonly called a root canal, root canal treatment is a type of endodontic therapy that is prescribed most typically if the tooth pulp and nerves become infected or severely damaged. This is typically due to damage reaching past the enamel layer and deep into the tooth. If not treated properly, this type of infection may cause the tooth to die and ultimately may require the tooth to be removed. To avoid potential extraction and to restore the health of the tooth, our skilled dentist will remove fill the tooth with medicated material after removing damaged or infected material and cleaning the tooth. We will then cap the tooth with a restoration, such as a dental crown, to provide the tooth with a natural appearance and structure. Most often, root canals can be completed in only one or two comfortable visits to our office.
