Endodontics, or Root Canals, are performed when the nerve of a tooth becomes infected.  Your dental pulp, inside your tooth, houses your nerves.  If the pulp becomes infected or damaged, it can cause pain and swelling.  A root canal is done in effort to save the tooth by removing the infected pulp, without loosing the tooth structure. 


Contrary to popular belief, a root canal treatment is not uncomfortable and is similar to having a filling done.  It is usually completed in 1-2 appointments.  Your tooth may feel tender for a few weeks following the procedure.  After complete restoration, your tooth will function the same as your other teeth.


Endodontic treatment will help you maintain your natural teeth and smile. 


Please call us if you have any question about Root Canal Treatment.
