What Is a Root Canal?
Although tooth pain is a common symptom of a problem requiring a root canal, you do not have to experience pain in order to need root canal therapy. If you have had advanced tooth decay or damage that has penetrated to the pulp or center of the tooth, you may benefit from root canal therapy. This procedure involves removing the pulp to prevent future infection and save the healthy tooth structure. After the inner chamber has been thoroughly cleaned and sealed, a dental crown is placed on top to protect the tooth and restore its strength, function, and beauty.
