Root Canal Treatments
The primary endodontic procedure is a root canal. Root canal therapy is necessary when the pulp chamber of your tooth becomes infected or impacted by decay. This can happen even with a thorough at-home oral hygiene routine.
When the nerve of your tooth becomes infected, a successful root canal treatment lets you keep the tooth rather than having to pull it out. Keeping your tooth helps to prevent your other teeth from drifting out of line and causing jaw problems. Saving a natural tooth avoids having to replace it with an artificial tooth.
