Root Canals

Inside each tooth is the pulp that extends down the tooth into the gums. The pulp provides nutrients and nerves to the tooth. When a tooth becomes infected, traumatized, or severely decayed, the pulp dies. This can cause infection, pain, abcesses, tooth discoloration or other complications.

Root canal therapy allows you to keep your tooth. The nerve is cleaned out and that area is sealed. After a root canal, the tooth will usually need a crown or composite restoration to protect it and bring it back to full strength.
