Root canals are used to save badly decayed, inflamed, and infected teeth. Bacteria, abscesses, and infection within the tooth are cleaned away and sealed to keep out contaminants for good. There is no need to fear from root canals, as many teeth that receive root canal therapy last a lifetime with proper care. Many patients report it's no more painful than a routine filling.
We also offer root canal re-treatment if an inadequate tooth restoration allowed bacteria back into the interior of the tooth.
