Endodontic Treatment - Root Canals

Root canals, a treatment that can help repair damaged soft tissue inside your tooth. This soft tissue is called the dental pulp, and it’s made up of nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue. Its job is to help your tooth grow, but sometimes it can get damaged.

When the dental pulp is damaged, it can lead to extreme pain, and you’ll probably know something is wrong. But don’t worry; your dentist can quickly identify the issue with a simple visit and an x-ray. If the dental pulp is indeed damaged, your dentist might recommend a root canal, also known as endodontic treatment.

During this procedure, the damaged pulp is removed, and a dental filling takes its place. By getting a root canal, we can save your tooth from further pain and potential issues. Leaving the damaged pulp untreated can lead to infection, and that can cause even more problems, like abscesses in your gums, and could even result in losing the whole tooth.
