Root Canal Thearpy
A root canal is a common dental procedure, which is used to repair a damaged tooth. Inside each tooth, is an area called the pulp chamber. The pulp chamber contains nerves and blood vessels, which run down to the root of the tooth. Unfortunately, bacteria can make their way into the pulp chamber and harm these nerves and blood vessels, causing pain.
The goal of the root canal procedure is to both relieve your pain and salvage your tooth, thus preventing tooth extraction. During the procedure we will gently remove the bacteria from the pulp chamber and replace the infected tissue with a dental material called gutta percha.
