ROOT CANAL THERAPY

root-canalA root canal means that the decay on the tooth has gotten down to the nerve. The nerve can be totally infected and abscessed at the bottom, or the nerve can be partially infected. A root canal consists of cleaning out the decay and removing the infected nerve of the tooth, then filling the tooth. Completing a tooth’s treatment sets the stage so your body’s healing process can take place as effectively as possible, thus allowing the tissues surrounding your tooth to maintain a healthy state.
