Root Canal Therapy

Root Canal Therapy is needed when the nerve of a tooth is affected by decay or infection. In order to save the tooth, the nerves, bacteria and any decay are removed and the resulting space is filled with special medicated dental materials, which restore the tooth to its full function. If a tooth has a complex root canal structure, we may recommend a referral to an Endodontist, a specialist in root canal therapy.

Having root canal therapy on a tooth is the treatment of choice to save a tooth that otherwise would die and have to be removed. Many patients believe that removing a tooth causing problems is the solution, but what is not realized is that extracting a tooth will ultimately be more costly and cause significant problems for adjacent teeth.

Signs and symptoms for possible root canal treatment:

  • An abscess on the gums.
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold.
  • Severe toothache.
  • Swelling and/or tenderness.
  • Trauma to the tooth.
