ROOT CANAL THERAPY
Request an Appointment
Root canal therapy comes in handy when tooth nerves are affected by infections and / or decay. In order to save an affected tooth, all its nerves and pulp are removed and filled with medicated dental materials. A crown is then used to restore the tooth to its full shape &function. Root canal therapy is the ideal dental procedure for saving a tooth that would otherwise require removal.

What root canal therapy entails
Root canal therapy can be conducted by an endodontist or a dentist. Through an access opening on top of the tooth the pulp is removed from the canals. Once the canals are cleaned, they are filled with medicated dental material.
