The pulp (innermost portion of your tooth containing nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue) within teeth can fail for a multitude of reasons, such as cavities, trauma or fracture. Pulp failure can result in severe pain, swelling and infection. To save a tooth with a failed or failing pulp, a root canal is necessary. Root canals clean out the pulp and restore it with a sealed, restorative material. Our doctors are known for providing care with little or no discomfort and are equipped with the latest technology.
