Root Canal Therapy

Root Canal Therapy 

Do you have a toothache that just won’t go away? Well, it is likely that you have a dental infection forming. A tooth will undoubtedly become infected and abscessed if a large cavity invades the inner pulpal tissue of that tooth. At this point, endodontic therapy, or root canal therapy, is the treatment of choice for saving the tooth.

The complete cleaning and sealing of the tooth’s canal spaces, along with antibiotic therapy, is necessary to relieve the pain and eliminate infection for long-term success. The treatment you may need to save your tooth may fall under one of the following options:

    •Complete root canal therapy

    •Partial pulp removal

    •Tooth root surgery

    •Root canal re-treatments

Absent from severe abscess formation, root canal therapy can and should be a smooth process, allowing for a relatively pain-free experience that will relieve you of severe tooth pain and help to preserve your dental health for years to come.
