Root Canal Treatment
Root canal therapy is needed when the nerve of the tooth is affected by decay or infection, and even trauma. This procedure involves cleaning, shaping, and filling the canals with medicated dental materials to help prevent re-infection. After a root canal the tooth becomes brittle and can break easily. Crowns are recommended to protect a tooth with a root canal from breaking. The latest techniques are used to accomplish this with the maximum amount of comfort for the patient.
