Root Canal Therapy Can Help Save Your Tooth

Root canal therapy (a root canal) can restore an infected tooth to its natural function and appearance. Contrary to popular belief, it’s typically no more painful than filling a cavity.

A root canal treatment will be recommended if your cavity is deep that bacteria will infiltrate the nerve space leading to nerve death. Left untreated, Toxins from the dead nerve will lead to abscess formation under the roots which in turn can lead to bone loss in your jaw as well as other health problems.

A root canal involves removal of the dead and infected nerve, clearing the nerve canals from bacteria and infected tissue then sealing them with a root canal filling material. A crown is placed over your tooth for further protection.
