What is the purpose of a root canal?
When a tooth is cracked or has a deep cavity, bacteria is able to enter the pulp tissue and cause an infection. If the diseased tissue is not removed, pain, swelling, abscess, damage to your jawbone and even more serious health issues can result. Without the proper care, your tooth will most likely have to be pulled. However, if you talk to our highly qualified team, we may be able to keep your tooth and smile intact by removing the infected pulp.
