Root Canals & Endodontics
What is the purpose of a root canal?
When a tooth is cracked or has a deep cavity, bacteria is able to enter the pulp tissue and germs can cause an infection inside the tooth. If this is left untreated, an abscess can form. If the diseased tissue is not removed, pain and swelling will occur. This will in turn affect your jawbone and can be detrimental to your overall health. Without the proper care, your tooth will most likely have to be pulled.
