Endodontic (Root Canals)

Root canal therapy is the most commonly performed procedure among all endodontic treatment procedures. Root canal therapy can help to preserve the tooth and also protect the jawbone when the inner pulp of the tooth becomes inflamed. The reasons why your pulp tissue may become irritated are deep decay, large fillings, trauma to the tooth, or even repeated dental work. The inflamed tissue surrounding the tooth can cause a toothache and infection and can damage the bones around the teeth. A Root Canal is performed to maintain good oral health as well as prevent future infections from developing.
