When the pulps of teeth are damaged or diseased, it is imperative to take care of the situation immediately. In many instances, a compromised pulp causes pain. A root canal treatment is the most commonly performed endodontic treatment.

Endodontic treatment is performed in these instances to save the tooth, and avoid removing the tooth completely.

In this case, when the tooth decay has reached the nerves in your root, a root canal removes the damaged nerve, and fills it with new material while still allowing you to retain your original tooth.

In instances where a tooth cannot be saved, a bridge or dental implant may be recommended, but in cases where the tooth can be saved, a root canal is a great option.
