Root Canal Treatment



Root canal treatment is the procedure which is used to treat and preserve teeth with badly infected roots.

The pulp is the live portion of the tooth that extends into the root and contains nerve endings and tissues.

When it becomes infected, patients can experience pain swelling and tooth loss unless treated. Root canals treatment instruments remove the damaged parts of the tooth and infected root.

The organic portion of the tooth that remains may be restored using a crown that provides natural appearance and normal tooth function.


 Many patients associate root canals with pain and discomfort.

But local anesthetics and advancements in modern dentistry have made root canals highly tolerable procedures that are often no less comfortable than getting a standard filling. Upon completion, a restored tooth that has undergone a root canal will blend in with surrounding teeth.


What should I expect during my root canal treatment?

If you decide to undergo a root canal, the first step in your procedure will involve a local anesthetic. Once your tooth root is numb, the diseased portion of your tooth pulp will be removed and potentially treated for bacterial infection. The tooth will then be sealed and filled.
