Advanced Root Canals

Root canals are a simple and common treatment. The middle of the tooth is made up of an assortment of blood vessel, called the pulp. Sometimes the pulp can become infected for reasons, such as decay, cracks, and trauma to the tooth. Symptoms may include swelling or sensitivity to temperature, or pain in the tooth. A root canal procedure is typically a non-surgical experience, providing you with local anesthesia. The diseased pulp is removed, the canal is cleaned, and then sealed to protect from further complications.
