Root Canal therapy


Root Canal therapy is a dental procedure that may save a tooth with a diseased nerve. Inside every tooth there is a part called the pulp. The pulp runs like a thread down through the root and provides the nerves and nutrients for your tooth. When the pulp of the tooth is diseased or injured, the tissue dies. If you don’t remove it, your tooth will be infected and there is a possibility you could lose it. Once the dentist removes the infected pulp, the root canal is cleaned and sealed off to protect it. A crown is then placed over the tooth to help make it stronger.

Most of the time, a root canal is a relatively simple procedure with little to no discomfort. A root canal can take as little as one or as many as three visits to complete. This is a very crucial procedure to help keep your teeth looking and feeling healthy.
