Root Canal Therapy

Treatment involves removing the diseased pulp (nerve) of the tooth. The pulp chamber and root canals of the tooth are cleaned and sealed. Diseased pulp is most commonly caused by a cracked tooth or deep decay. These allow bacteria to enter the pulp and cause an infection within the tooth. Left without treatment, pus builds up at the root tip and forms an "abscess".
