Root Canals

Root Canals

Root canals are performed on teeth where the nerve is unhealthy or infected. This usually results from a badly decayed or fractured tooth. Root canal therapy cleans and shapes the canals within the roots of the teeth removing unhealthy and infected debris. After removing the infected debris, material is placed within the canal space. After a tooth receives root canal therapy it will require restorative work which could involve a crown or a filling.
