Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment or Endodontic therapy is an effective way to preserve teeth that would otherwise need to be extracted. By preserving your tooth, you can maintain natural biting function and tooth alignment. Thanks to modern techniques, getting a root canal is just as straightforward as having a filling or crown fitted.

What causes root canal damage?

Here a few basic reasons that can cause root canal damage:

  • Decayed teeth, usually as a result of poor oral hygiene
  • Repeated procedures to the tooth
  • Infected cracked, chipped or broken teeth
  • Injury or trauma

What is involved?

During a root canal procedure, we numb the tooth to prevent any sensitivity. The nerve is accessed and removed. Then, the open chamber is sealed off to prevent infection from recurring. You can think of getting a root canal similar to a filling that extends down into the root of your tooth.

If you’re in pain or have a visible dental abscess, it won’t resolve on its own. Call Angel Dental Care today!
