A root canal is a procedure that involve taking out the entire pulp of a tooth. Each of your teeth has a pulp, which is often called the nerve. If this pulp becomes infected by decay or is damaged inany way, it will need to be removed. You will find that an infected pulp becomes painful until it is properly removed.
The best way to determine if a root canal is needed is with an examination. We may take x-rays to better identify areas of decay or to see if a pulp has been impacted by a break or crack in the tooth. It is recommended that if you need a root canal, it be done as soon as possible to prevent problems. Our goal is to provide you with a healthy, pain-free smile as soon as possible.
