Root Canal Therapy
While the outer layer of a tooth (the crown) is largely comprised of dense enamel, the inner chamber contains sensitive nerves and soft tissues. If bacteria reach this area, a root canal infection can result. Root canal infections require emergency treatment since the infection can quickly spread to the underlying bone and supportive structures of a tooth.
To stop the spread of infection and to preserve your natural tooth, one of our doctors may perform a root canal. The straight-forward procedure removes pockets of infections and seals your tooth to prevent further infection.
