Root Canals

When dental caries or cavities begins damaging the layers of the tooth through the enamel and dentin, it may make its way towards the dental pulp.

The dental pulp houses the nerves and arteries of a tooth and when cavities make their way into the pulp, cold and hot sensitivity can persist and extreme pain is usually a resulting symptom.


When this happens the dentist drills down into the tooth to remove all traces of bacteria and decay and then proceeds to remove and clean the pulp chamber and root canals with fine instruments.

This is usually a 1 or 2 visit process ending with a tooth that is no longer painful, fully functional and natural looking.
