Root Canals & Endodontic Therapy
Thinking about a root canal might make you nervous, but for patients who are experiencing a severe tooth infection, root canal therapy provides relief and comfort. The root canal procedure is named after the tiny passages that nerves use to travel from the tooth roots to the pulp chamber. When an infection spreads to the pulp chamber, it can affect these nerves and cause a serious, chronic toothache. If the infection isn’t treated, it can continue to spread and cause even more serious dental and health problems. Root canal treatments get rid of harmful bacteria, and completely alleviate hard-to-live-with tooth infection symptoms.
