Root Canal Treatment

     If your tooth's nerve chamber becomes infected by decay, root canal treatment is often the only way to save your tooth.


     Inside your tooth's hard outer shell is a nourishing pulp of blood vessels and nerves.  The root canals, which contain the pulp, extend to the bone.


     Deep tooth decay, or an injury, can cause serious damage and infection to the pulp's nerves and vessels.  Root canal, or endodontic, treatment cleans out the infected pulp chamber and repairs the damage.


     Some indications of the need for root canal treatment may be:

  1. Spontaneous pain or throbbing while biting.
  2. Sensitivity to hot or cold foods.
  3. Severe decay or an injury that creates an abscess (infection) in the bone

     The Root Canal procedure is divided into five steps:

  • After the tooth is anesthesized, an opening is made through the crown into the pulp chamber.
  • The length of the root canals is determined.
  • Unhealthy pulp is removed.  Canals are cleaned, enlarged, and shaped.
  • Canals are filled and sealed.  A metal post may be added for structural support or to retain restorative materials.
  • The tooth is sealed with a temporary filling.  The tooth is then restored two weeks later with a permanent filling or crown.
