Eliminate the Pain with Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is often necessary when an infection gets deep into the tooth, causing inflammation. This can be a painful experience and often the best way to eliminate the pain and restore your tooth is through root canal therapy.
How Does Root Canal Therapy Work?
During root canal treatment, infected or diseased pulp tissue is removed from the root canals and pulp chamber. When this inflamed tissue is removed, you’ll never have to deal with pain in that tooth again!
The canals are then filled with a permanent material that will keep the canals from becoming infected or contaminated in the future.
Once this is complete, the process of rebuilding the tooth will begin. If a tooth is structurally sound before the procedure, it may only require a permanent filling for restoration. In many cases however, your dentist will want to crown the tooth, which offers more support and durability.

Having an Emergency? Come See Us Right Away!
Root Canal therapy is a very common remedy for dental emergencies. If you are suffering from any of the following symptoms, this may be the right treatment for you.
- Sudden pain in tooth
- Throbbing pain that is persistent in tooth, gums and jaw
- Painful cavity
- Swelling of tissue around tooth
These symptoms could be a sign that you have an abscessed tooth. This occurs when an infection occurs in the pulp and root canals and eventually creates a painful abscess around the tooth’s root. This can be extremely painful and lead to more severe infection if left untreated.
If you are suffering through this type of pain, root canal therapy may be the best option. This treatment will leave your tooth strong and free of infection and pain.
