Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is used to treat damaged or infected area in the pulp of the tooth. Significant tooth decay, cracked teeth, trauma or having several dental procedures done to a tooth may result in a root canal. Once the pulp or nerve of the tooth is damaged, patients may experience symptoms such as tenderness, swelling, temperature sensitivity or an abscess that drains. Most often these teeth can be treated in the office; however we often consult with a group of experienced Endodontists (root canal specialists) in some cases.
