Discover the Confidence that Comes With Superb Dental Care – Set Your First Appointment Today!
Inside the tooth under the enamel and tooth structure there is a hollow solace called the pulp chamber. This area is filled with living tissue called pulp that keeps the tooth alive. This means keeping that tissue healthy is very important.
Sometimes traumatic damage or tooth decay can cause the pulp to become infected putting pressure on the tooth structure, causing you to feel lots of pain. If left untreated, the infection can spread to the rest of the mouth or body.

How Does Root Canal Treatment Work?
If we discover that your root canal is infected we’ll recommend root canal treatment to remove the infected pulp by making a small hole in the tooth. After doing this, we’ll be able to save the tooth and clear the pulp chamber of current infection and prevent any future bacterial infection. After removing all the infected tissue we’ll reseal the tooth and it will look as natural as ever!
