What's a Root Canal

Simply put, the root canal treatment procedure is used to remove infection from within the center of your tooth, allowing your body to heal. A preparation is made through the chewing surface of a tooth to locate a group of canals within the root structure.

Once entered, we remove the infected pulp, clean and shape the canal system walls and place fillings in the canal. Many endodontic treatments can be performed in as little as one appointment, however the overall time frame for the appointment depends on the severity of the infection.
