Endodontic Services

Root canal treatment – This treatment is indicated if the nerve in one or more roots in a tooth become infected. One cause of this is if bacteria from decay reaches the pulp chamber of a tooth. The canal is cleaned using graduated files and filled/sealed with gutta percha (rubbery material) and medicated cement. An endodontically treated tooth is no longer vital and easier to break or crack. A crown is usually used to restore this tooth.
