Root Canal TherapyRoot Canal Therapy is used to save a tooth that has a diseased nerve. Inside each tooth is pulp which provides nutrients and nerves to the tooth. The pulp runs like a thread down through the root of the tooth. When the pulp is diseased or injured, the pulp tissue dies. If it is not removed, your tooth will become infected and you then risk the loss of the tooth.
In Root Canal Therapy, the dentist removes the pulp, cleans the root canal(s) and seals it off to protect it. Then, in most cases, a crown is placed over the tooth to help strengthen it.
Most often root canal therapy is a relatively simple procedure involving little or no discomfort. It is normally completed in one to three visits. Best of all, it can save your tooth.
