Root Canal Treatments

Root canal treatments repair a decaying and infected tooth by removing the infection from the inner, soft chamber in the center of the tooth (called the "pulp"). Infection in the pulp can lead to extreme pain and discomfort and even to the loss of the tooth entirely if not treated. Untreated pulp infection also result in bone loss and swelling of your face and neck.

We thoroughly clean out the infection and seal the tooth to help prevent future decay. In some cases, we will also place a crown on top of the afflicted tooth to help protect the tooth.
