Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy (endodontic treatment) is a procedure used to remove inflamed or infected tissue from the inside of your tooth. The tooth is filled, sealed and restored with a crown for protection.

This procedure is the absolute best way to save a dying tooth that would otherwise need to be extracted.

Some signs that you may need root canal therapy:

  • Serious tooth pain when using the area
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold
  • Pimple-like bump on the gums near the pained area
  • Darkening of the tooth
  • Tenderness or swelling of the gums near the pained area
