Root Canal Therapy

Sometimes if we have a cracked tooth or a large cavity inside of a tooth, the soft tissues inside may 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, removing debris and bacteria. During the entire process, the inside of the tooth is cleaned and rinsed several times with a strong solution which kills the remaining bacteria.

Finally, the canals are filled with a biocompatible material called gutta percha and the tooth is built up and sealed with composite resin. After root canal therapy, teeth naturally become brittle and require crowns for protection and longevity of the tooth. 

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