It is our primary goal to preserve your natural teeth whenever possible.

Root canal treatment may become necessary when the pulp tissue inside the root canals of a tooth becomes damaged, or the pulp tissue becomes inflamed through dental trauma or decay. Teeth generally have between one and four root canals, and endodontic treatment may be performed on a single or multiple root canals within a tooth. Located within the root canals, the tooth's pulp contains blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue.

What to Expect

During this procedure, the crown of the tooth is opened, allowing the doctor to access the root canal(s). The pulp tissue in the infected root canal is removed, and the canals are cleaned. A series of files is used to remove any remaining tissue, slightly enlarge the canals, and smooth the walls of the canals. Once any infection has completely cleared up, which could take a few days or longer, the root canals are sealed with gutta-percha or root canal sealer to prevent bacteria or debris from entering the root canals and causing further infection. Finally, your general or cosmetic dentist will seal the tooth with either a filling or a dental crown.
