Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy is needed when the nerve of a tooth is damaged by decay, infection or trauma.  It is usually a painless procedure aimed at saving a tooth and restoring it to normal function.  It is an excellent alternative to removing a tooth.

Signs and symptoms which may indicate the need for root canal therapy:

  • An abscess (or pimple) on the gums
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold
  • Tooth pain
  • Swelling or tenderness
  • X-ray evidence of nerve damage

Reasons for root canal therapy:

  • Decay has reached the tooth pulp (nerve)
  • Infection or abscess inside or around the tooth
  • Injury or trauma to the tooth
