Root Canal Therapy

When the nerve of a tooth is infected with bacteria or is damaged due to trauma, the tooth can exhibit great pain. A root canal, or endodontic therapy, can be preformed and rid the tooth of pain and ultimately save it.

The nerve in the tooth is removed, the canal space cleaned, and the inside space filled with material to seal it off. Teeth that have root canals typically will need a crown to protect the tooth from further damage.
