root canals

LET OUR FAMILY TAKE CARE OF YOUR FAMILY


When bacteria (germs) enter your tooth through deep cavities, cracks or flawed fillings, your tooth can become abscessed. An abscessed tooth is a tooth with an infection in the pulp. If the pulp becomes infected, it needs to be removed, which is the root canal. An abscessed tooth may cause pain and/or swelling. Your dentist may notice the infection from dental x-rays or from other changes in the tooth. If left untreated, an abscessed tooth can cause serious oral health problems.

Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic treatment, is the process of removing infected, injured or dead pulp from your tooth. The space inside the hard layers of each tooth is called the root canal system. This system is filled with soft dental pulp or the nerve of the tooth.
