ENDODONTICS & ROOT CANAL THERAPY

A root canal is not just the name of a procedure associated with severe tooth decay it is also the name of an integral part of your oral anatomy.  “Root canal” is the term 
used to describe the natural cavity within the center of the tooth where the nerve lies.  Root canals are susceptible to bacterial infection when the tooth is compromised by a cavity, fracture, extensive dental procedures, or other traumatic injury.

Root Canal Therapy

Is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or infected.  The procedure cleans the infected area, eliminates the harmful bacteria, and then seals the canal to prevent future infections.  The final step usually involves the placement of a dental crown to strengthen and protect the original tooth.
