Root Canal Treatment

Root Canal Treatment or Root Canal Therapy is used to preserve a tooth which otherwise would need to be extracted because of infection.  
Sometimes teeth form cracks that lead to the nerve of the tooth or have deep decay that infects the nerve of the tooth in which case you experience severe pain and discomfort.  To alleviate this pain root canal therapy is performed. The nerve is taken out of your tooth, and the tooth and root canals where the nerves were, are filled. This procedure along with all others are pain free no matter how invasive they sound!
