Root Canal Therapy

A tooth can require a root canal for a number of reasons, all of which involve the nerve, or pulp, of the tooth.

During the procedure, the pulp chamber and canals are removed, cleaned and shaped, then filled and sealed. After a root canal, the tooth no longer has sensation, but preserves its chewing and esthetic functions. Most often, a crown is recommended after a root canal procedure to increase the tooth's longevity.
