Root Canal Treatments

What is a Root Canal?

Root canal is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or has become infected. During a root canal, the inside of the root of the tooth is cleaned out and sealed. Without treatment the tissue surrounding the tooth becomes infected and abscesses can form.

These are some common symptoms that indicate you might need a root canal treatment:

  • Tender gums which might also be swollen
  • Extreme sensitivity to cold and hot temperatures
  • Discoloration of the tooth
  • Severe toothache

If you have any questions regarding root canal treatments, call us today.
