Root canal treatment is designed to save a problem tooth. Deep decay, gum disease, trauma, or a tooth fracture can all cause infection that spreads to the pulp, resulting in excruciating pain or tooth abscesses. By removing the diseased tissue, the spread of infection is put to a stop and the healthy part of the tooth is restored.
Root canal treatment is an easy, quick procedure that is virtually pain-free. It involves removing the affected enamel and diseased tissue, then filling the disinfected space and capping it with a porcelain crown. The health and beauty of your tooth is restored, so you can look and feel your best.
