Root Canal Therapy

A

root canal is the space within the root of a tooth that connects to other parts of the tooth. The dental pulp is a soft core that extends from the crown to the tooth’s root in the jawbone. When a tooth has a cavity or becomes cracked, bacteria can enter the pulp. Once infected, the tooth begins to decay.

Symptoms include:

  • Hole in tooth
  • Severe toothache
  • Gum swelling
  • Teeth become sensitive to temperature
  • Pain when chewing

              If you are suffering from any of the above mentioned symptoms, be sure to call us immediately.
