Root Canals End Tooth Pain and Save Infected Teeth
Tooth pain, swelling or pressure in the jaw often indicate signs of infected teeth, or teeth that have internal damage, cracks or decay. When damage to tooth structure occurs, bacteria have entered the pulp (center) of a tooth and initiated a process of infection that must be stopped in order for the tooth to be saved. Infection from these teeth can easily spread into the underlying jawbone and throughout the body, if not treated in a timely manner. A root canal is a common procedure we perform to treat infected teeth and save them from tooth extractions. Our multi-specialty team has extensive experience in successfully treating teeth with gentle, modern root canal therapy.
