Root Canals

Root canal treatment is done when decay will likely damage or has already killed a tooth. During a root canal, the pulp is removed from the center of the tooth and the pulp cavity is filled. This can prevent the development of a painful infection in the pulp that may spread to the other teeth. Root canal can also treat an infection that has developed into an abscessed tooth. This procedure can relieve toothache , stop infection and promote health.
