Root canal treatment is a procedure our dentist perform to repair and save severely decayed, infected, or damaged teeth. We offer this treatment to prevent tooth loss and help our patients keep their smiles healthy and complete.
During your root canal treatment, our dentist will remove the infected nerve and pulp from the inside of the tooth. Next, the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed. Finally, the tooth is restored with a dental crown to maintain its natural strength, function, and appearance. Without treatment, the gum tissue surrounding the affected tooth can become infected, and an abscess may form. Untreated abscesses lead to further inflammation, pain, and swelling.
