Root Canal Treatment
Root canal treatments, also known as endotherapy, provide relief to teeth suffering from infected nerve tissue. Symptoms vary by patient, but they often include consistent toothaches, extreme and prolonged sensitivity to hot and cold, a darkening of the tooth, and gum swelling.
Teeth have a crown and a root. Sometimes the pulp around the root, due to decay or trauma, becomes infected. If the infection is severe enough and/or lasts a long time, the pulp becomes too damaged to sustain the tooth.

This is when a dentist prescribes a root canal, to save the tooth, stop the infection from spreading, and eliminate the pain.
Root canal treatments are essential if your goal is to preserve your original tooth rather than replace it with a denture or implant. Most patients who come to us say they are so glad they did because it wasn’t as bad as they expected at all.
We provide guidance to help minimize the chance of requiring another root canal in the future so that you can enjoy a healthy set of teeth for years to come.
The biggest benefit of a root canal treatment is being able to enjoy your favorite foods again and be able to chew painlessly.
