Root Canals

Root canal therapy is needed when the pulp of a tooth has become either become irreversibly inflamed or dies. In a root canal, the tooth is opened up, the pulp of the tooth is removed, and the root canals of the tooth are cleaned out and shaped. Afterward, special filling material is placed, extending to the end of the roots. If the root canal is difficult or complex, we may refer you to an endodontist, a root canal specialist.
