Root Canal Therapy

A root canal is a treatment that is done when the tooth’s pulp becomes infected. Infection can be caused by deep decay, large cracks or breaks in the teeth or trauma to the face.

During a root canal, the pulp and root are removed and the tooth is cleaned and sealed. A root canal effectively removes the infection while allowing the tooth to maintain its natural strength.

If left untreated, the infection in the tooth can lead to an abscess and the infection can spread throughout your mouth, face and neck.

Depending on the location of the infected tooth or the severity of the infection, we may refer you to a specialist for treatment.
