Why Might You Need a Root Canal?

The treatments are required when the soft tissue (commonly known as the pulp) inside your root canal becomes infected. Deep decays and cracks can cause this from becoming infected. An abscess can be caused when the infection is left untreated. If you are experiencing tooth pain, discoloration, sensitivity to heat or cold, or tenderness on your bone or gums, then contact our dentists. You most likely have an infection and are in need of a root canal treatment.

How Does a Root Canal Treatment Work?

Your dentist will want to take x-rays to properly see the infected area and decide on a treatment plan. Your dentist will then make and opening to properly clean out the pulp and affected areas. Your dentist will then apply a dental crown or some other restoration to cap off and fully protect your tooth.
