Root Canal

Endodontic (root canal) treatment allows the dentist to remove infected nerve and pulp from the tooth while preserving the structure of the tooth for restoration and function.


When the nerve or pulp within the tooth becomes inflamed or necrotic (dead) it can cause toothache and infection.  Endodontic treatment (root canal) is a method that preserves the placement and function of a natural tooth even when the nerve and pulp must be removed.  Once the nerve and pulp are removed, the tooth is filled with inert material and restored with a filling or crown.
