Endodontics or Root Canal

If your tooth’s nerve chamber becomes infected by decay, then a root canal treatment may be the only way to save your tooth.

Inside your tooth’s hard outer shell is a nourishing pulp of blood and lymphatic vessels, and nerves. Deep tooth decay or injury can damage these nerves and vessels.

In a root canal or endodontic treatment, the infected pulp is cleaned out and the damage is repaired.
