Root Canal

A root canal, also known as endodontic therapy, is a procedure that removes infected pulp from the tooth's root, and replaces it with an inert material. Though a root canal can be uncomfortable, there are several benefits to having the procedure, including:

  • Natural appearance
  • Normal biting and feeling
  • Efficient chewing
  • Protects other teeth from excessive wear
