What Exactly is a Root Canal Treatment

The main reason a root canal is recommended is because the tooth has suffered from decay or infection. Sometimes it is best to have a root canal if there has been a major injury to a tooth. In either case, the pulp of the tooth is damaged which causes moderate to extreme pain. Inside of each tooth are nerve root endings which when are exposed to bacteria or temperature changes.

During the treatment, appropriate areas of the mouth are numbed with an anesthesia. Once the anesthesia sets, we will remove any dead or infected pulp tissue and disinfect diseased canals. Lastly, the tooth is sealed and capped with a crown.
