What Is a Root Canal?

A root canal is a procedure used to salvage a tooth by removing an infected and damaged root nerve. The surgery involves gently removing the nerve and pulp to prevent further damage to the surrounding teeth and gum.

Even though the procedure is referred to as a root canal, the root itself does not get removed; only the soft tissue from inside the structure gets removed. If decay is minimal, a small filling will be required. If decay is more extensive, root canal therapy will be required.

Do Root Canals Hurt?

A root canal is generally a simple procedure with little or no discomfort involved. The treatment takes between one to three visits to our office. If you continue to maintain good oral hygiene after your root canal, your restored tooth could last a lifetime.

If you find yourself nervous about the prospect of a root canal, please tell our team. We want you to feel comfortable and have a pain-free experience, and we will work with you to ensure your entire visit with us is stress-free.

What Causes Infected Pulp?

  • A deep cavity
  • Injury to the tooth, with or without visible damage
  • Repeated dental procedures
  • A broken tooth
