Endodontics ( Root Canal )

Root canal is removing the decayed pulp tissue (composed of soft connective tissue, vascular, lymphatic and nervous elements) that occupies the central pulp cavity of each tooth, and the roots of the tooth and filling it with a filler material.

If you present any of the following symptoms you might need a Root canal:

Severe pain while chewing or biting.


Lingering sensitivity to hot or cold even after the sensation has been removed.


A chipped or cracked tooth.


Swollen or tender gums.


Deep decay or darkening of the tooth


Pimples on the gums.

Saving your natural tooth with a root canal treatment has many advantages:

Efficient chewing

Normal biting force and sensation 

Natural appearance 

Protect other teeth from excessive wear or strain

Research has proven that endodontic treatment and dental implants are equally successful therefore it makes sense to start by trying to save your natural tooth. Nothing looks feels or functions like it.

If for whatever reason healing does not occur then an implant is an excellent backup plan.

Call our office for a consultation if you are experiencing any of the symptoms.
