Root Canal

Root canal treatment is highly successful and usually lasts a lifetime, although on occasion, a tooth will have to be retreated due to new infections.

Root canal treatment is needed when the nerve of a tooth is affected by decay or infection. In order to save the tooth, the pulp (the living tissue inside the tooth), nerves, bacteria, and any decay are removed and the resulting space is filled with special, medicated, dental materials, which restore the tooth to its full function.

During a root canal treatment, the inflamed or infected pulp is removed and the inside of the tooth is carefully cleaned and disinfected, and then filled and sealed with a rubber-like material called gutta-percha. Afterwards, the tooth is filled for protection and then crowned. After restoration, the tooth will continue to function normally.
Contrary to jokes about the matter, modern root canal treatment is very similar to having a routine filling and usually can be completed in one or two appointments; depending on the condition of your tooth and your personal circumstances. You can expect a comfortable experience during and after your appointment.
