Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment is done when decay will likely damage or has already killed a tooth.  During a root canal, a dentist removes the pulp from the center of a tooth and fills the pulp cavity thermoplastic material that seals it and prevents future infection.  This can prevent the development of a painful infection in the pulp that may spread to other teeth.

A root canal can also treat an infection that has developed into an abscessed tooth.  This procedure can remove a toothache, stop infection, and promote healing.

A root canal may be the treatment option for you if you have a tooth ache that lasts for hours or prevents you from sleeping.
