Root Canal Treatment

When the inner tissues of a tooth, such as the nerve or blood vessels, become exposed to the oral environment or to decay, bacteria travels into the roots of the tooth and can create an infection. A root canal treatment is performed to save an infected tooth from extraction.

During a root canal treatment, the infected pulp (nerves and blood vessels) is removed, the area is cleaned, disinfected, sealed, and filled with a rubber-like dental material.  

We recommend protecting your root canal treatment and your tooth by restoring your tooth with a dental crown. This helps to reduce the risk of root canal failure and tooth fracture.
