Root Canals

“Root canal" is the term used to describe the natural cavity within the center of the tooth.
The root canal procedure is a highly successful treatment that allows the tooth to stay in place instead of having to be extracted. A root canal procedure removes the diseased tissue, halting the spread of infection, and restoring the healthy portion of the tooth. Endodontic therapy is indicated when a tooth has an abscess and the below steps are followed:
  •  The decay is removed, the infected pulp is removed and the nerve canals are filled.
  •  A reinforcing post is placed followed by a crown.
