Why You Might Need a Root Canal
At the center of every tooth is a small amount of soft tissue called the dental pulp that contains the tooth's nerve. If bacteria reach and infect the pulp (whether due to a cavity or crack in the enamel), the result is usually a very bad toothache. Root canal therapy enables our team to remove this pulp, clean and disinfect the inside of the tooth, and stop a patient’s pain right away. Fortunately, despite what you might have seen in movies and on TV, this is now a virtually painless procedure that can help a compromised tooth look and function like normal for many years to come.
