Root Canal Therapy
Save an injured or infected tooth from extraction with root canal therapy.
Did you know that each tooth contains it’s own long, thin strand of dental pulp that provides the tooth with nutrients and nerves and extends all the way down to the tooth’s root? It’s true. Unfortunately, sometimes the pulp becomes infected or injured, causing the tooth’s nerve to die. Luckily, when this occurs, root canal therapy can save your smile.
Some signs that you may have an infected or injured tooth nerve and need root canal therapy include:
- Severe tooth or gum pain
- Tooth discoloration
- Prolonged tooth sensitivity
- A tooth abscess
- Swelling or tenderness in your lymph nodes under your jaw
While root canal therapy may get a bad rap, it actually helps save infected or injured teeth from extraction. During this extremely routine, safe, and relatively pain-free procedure, the tooth’s diseased content is removed and then sealed permanently with a dental crown. Once the root canal therapy is complete, the tooth is saved and you have a fully restored smile.
