Root Canal Therapy

The goal of root canal treatment is to retain your tooth in your dental arch. Why? To preserve the jaw bone that supports it and to provide a surface on which to chew food.

When the nerve or pulp of your tooth becomes inflamed or infected, it can cause pain, swelling, and throbbing. This can be a result of trauma to the tooth or bacteria from decay. Root canal or endodontic therapy simply removes the source of infection along with blood and nerve supply, after which a biocompatible filling material is placed to seal the tooth. Once a tooth has had a root canal, the tooth becomes very dry and brittle and is therefore prone to fracturing. A crown is highly recommended to strengthen and protect your tooth.

Common symptoms of a root canal infection:

  • Sharp, acute or intense pain
  • Pain when biting
  • Sensitivity to hot or cold
  • Tooth feels higher when biting
  • Tenderness and swelling of soft tissue around the tooth
  • Bad taste in the mouth
