Root Canal Therapy

Sometimes if we have a cracked tooth or a huge cavity inside of a tooth, the soft tissues inside can get inflamed and/or infected. These teeth require endodontic therapy also known as root canal therapy. By using today's technology and powerful anesthetics, root canals are now painless and quick.

After the doctor ensures you're numb and can't feel anything, the decay is then cleaned out with a small dental drill and the canals of the tooth are exposed. 

Then, the canals are thoroughly filed, cleaned and rinsed with a solution that kills all of the bacteria.

Finally, the canals are filled with a biocompatible material called gutta percha. After root canal therapy, teeth usually become brittle and require crowns to protect and prolong the longevity of the tooth. 

If taken proper care of, a root canal treated tooth may last up to a lifetime.
