What is a Root Canal?

Endodontic treatment, more commonly known as root canal therapy, is necessary when the pulp of your tooth becomes inflamed or infected.

The inflammation or infection can have a variety of causes such as deep decay, or a crack or chip in the tooth, with proper care; an endodonctically treated tooth will function normally for years to come.

How Did My Tooth Get Infected?

The two most common causes of infection in the pulp are deep cavities and fractured or broken teeth. Both expose the pulp to bacteria that live in saliva. These bacteria, which are always present in your mouth, can cause an infection that can kill the pulp. Without treatment, the pus from the infection can eventually gather down at the root tip and pass into the jaw bone, causing an abscess (a pus pocket). The abscess can then damage the bone that surrounds the tooth. The resulting pressure inside the bone and ligaments surrounding the tooth can cause excruciating pain, and left untreated, can even be life threatening.


Signs & Symptoms

  • Moderate to severe lingering toothache pain when drinking hot or cold liquids or foods.

  • Moderate to severe pain when biting on a tooth

  • Sensitivity to tapping or pressure on the tooth

  • Toothache that wakes you up in the middle of the night

  • A pimple on your gum that may release pus or blood

  • Radiating pain from one area of the mouth to another

What People Are Saying See how our patients love us!

This dentist office was awesome! I made an appointment for my husband because he was having a lot of pain and they were able schedule him the very next day. My husband usually hates getting dental work, but had a great experience!

WOW!! How refreshing to see a dentist and have a thorough evaluation to judge the necessity of my treatment before any procedure is recommended instead of what my insurance and wallet will cover!! He actually talked to me about different options and answered my questions without making me feel dental dumb. If you are seeing any other dentist I feel bad for you. This dentist is a rare gem!!!

H W. on Yelp

After chipping my tooth today while at work, I called and was offered a spot immediately. It was nearly my lunch time so I headed right to the office. My tooth was fixed and I was right back to work. Everyone was really friendly, which is typical for this office. I couldn't have had a better experience. Thanks so much!
