Root Canal Treatment Specialist
When is a Root Canal Needed?
Your teeth consist of a root or roots filled with tunnel-like structures that house live blood vessels and nerves, which contribute to the health and functioning of your tooth. When these canals become infected, typically via a large cavity, the only way to save a tooth from being extracted is to perform a root canal.
What is a Root Canal?
A root canal is when a hole is created in the top of your tooth to access the pulp chamber and nerves, in which endodontic files will be used to remove the nerve and clean out all the bacteria within the canals. An electric, handheld rotary device which creates no drilling or scraping noise, will be used to create the most comfortable experience, with the best result. Your tooth will be filled with medicine and sealed up. A crown will then be needed on the tooth to complete treatment.
