Root Canal

Root canal therapy (endodontics) treats disorders of the nerve (pulp) of the tooth. It used to be that a tooth with a diseased or infected nerve had to be removed. In 95 percent of these cases today, however, this is no longer true. We believe in saving teeth (instead of removing them) and we will make every effort to save yours.

When the cavity extends beyond the Enamel and Dentin and progresses to the Pulp, it gives rise to severe pain. In such a situation, before a filling can be done the infection has to be removed from the canals of the tooth. This treatment is called a Root Canal Treatment. The tooth is made numb so that there is no pain and the canals are cleaned out.

Root Canal Treatment is basically a Blind procedure because we can not visually see where we are working. Although despite this the success rates for Root Canal Treatment are very good.
