Root Canal Treatment

What’s a Root Canal?

When a cavity is small, bacteria and decay are contained to the outermost layer of the tooth. As a cavity grows, the decay advances deeper into the tooth, leading to a very painful toothache and infection.

A root canal removes decay from deep within the tooth, stops any infection, and relieves bad toothaches. By performing a root canal, we can help you keep your natural teeth for as long as possible, avoiding the need for an extraction and implant.

While most root canals are the result of untreated decay, injuries and accidents can crack teeth, too. This allows bacteria to spread deep inside the tooth. So if you’ve broken a tooth in a car accident or while eating, get it checked out. 

The sooner the better!
