Root Canal Treatment
The field of dentistry concerned with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the dental pulp.
Years ago, teeth with diseased or injured pulps were extracted. Today, root canal treatment gives dentists a safe and effective means of saving teeth.
The pulp is made up of nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue, which are important in tooth development. There are very small canals within your tooth and they can become infected quite easily. This causes the pulp inside your tooth to become infected as well. Pain and swelling may accompany the infection. Even in the absence of pain, certain by-products of a diseased pulp can injure the bone that anchors your tooth in the jaw. Our endodontists, who are dental specialists in root canal treatment, will remove the infection by performing a root canal procedure.
Treatment usually requires from one to three appointments. The pulp chamber and root canal(s) of the tooth is then cleaned, shaped, filled and sealed to prevent recontamination of the root canal system.
