ROOT CANALS

What is a Root Canal?

When a cavity reaches deep into a tooth and starts to affect the pulp of the tooth, a root canal may be needed. A root canal is done to save a tooth that would otherwise further decay and weaken structurally.

What happens during a root canal procedure?

The procedure of a root canal involves removing the pulp and nerve of a tooth and replacing it with a rubber (gutta percha) material. After a root canal is completed, the tooth may need a crown to help strenghthen the remaining tooth structure from everyday biting forces.

How could you benefit from a root canal?

  • To attempt to save a tooth that would otherwise need to be taken out in the future
  • To take away extreme tooth sensitivity from hot, cold or sweets
