Endodontic treatment (Root Canal Therapy) saves a severely injured, cracked, or decayed tooth when its pulp (the nerve of the tooth) becomes inflamed or infected. If not treated promptly a tooth may abscess, causing severe pain.

Sometimes an endodontic problem can exist without warning signs, however some common symptoms that may present are:

  • Tooth or gum pain, discoloration, or prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold
  • A tooth that is tender when it is touched
  • Pus drainage in your mouth
  • Swelling or tenderness in the lymph nodes under your jaw

Root canal treatment involves the extraction of diseased pulp. The pulp chamber and root canal(s) of your tooth are then cleaned, medicated and sealed. A dental crown is then placed to protect and strengthen the tooth.

Root canals can typically be completed in one visit, although more extensive cases may require another appointment and/or seeing an Endodontist (a root canal specialist).
