Root Canals

Root Canal

What is a Root Canal?

A root canal is a procedure to save a tooth that would otherwise need to be extracted. Our teeth have one or more roots and a canal that goes through the root of the tooth. This canal is the pathway that nerves and blood supply travel through. A root canal procedure cleans out that canal. This is done by clearing out any infection, sterilizing the canal, and then filling the inside with a rubber base material to seal it.

Why is This Necessary?

A root canal is necessary when there are very deep cavities or the tooth has experienced trauma.
