Root Canal Treatment

The inside of a tooth has a fine space called root canal that contains dental pulp (soft tissues) such as nerves and blood vessels, that runs from the root to the crown.

A tooth that becomes sensitive to hot or cold food or beverages or hurts when biting down may indicate an infected tooth. A tooth that becomes discolored or that causes the gums to swell around a tooth may also indicate a dental infection.

Once infection reaches dental pulp, Root Canal Therapy (Endodontic Treatment) is required to save the tooth, if not the tooth needs to be extracted.

With Root Canal Treatment, dentist at Shine Dental carefully removes the the nerves and blood vessels from root canal with fine instruments, gently cleans and seals to protect the canal from bacteria.

The tooth is then restored back into useful function.
