Root Canal Treatment
Root Canals Can Save Your Smile
What Does It Consist Of?
A root canal is a treatment that removes infection from the tooth pulp which is the part of the tooth where nerves, blood vessels, and other soft tissues are located.
When the pulp becomes overrun with bacteria, the tooth can suffer significant damage. The tooth pulp is connected to the root canal, hence the name of the procedure.
The decay that necessitates this treatment is more severe and runs deeper than that found in a traditional cavity. Ultimately, the procedure can save your tooth from extraction and allow a return to a healthy smile.
