Root Canal Therapy
Reasons for a Root Canal
If bacteria is able to reach the inner chamber of a tooth, it may infect the dental pulp, a cluster of nerve tissue found in the center of each of your teeth. This can cause it to swell, leading to a buildup of pressure that is quite unpleasant. With a root canal, this tissue is removed, and then the tooth is repaired to restore the lost structure so it’s able to look and function like normal for years to come.
