Our Services - Root Canals

Endodontic treatment, more commonly known as root canal therapy, is necessary when the pulp of your tooth becomes inflamed or infected. The inflammation or infection can have a variety of causes such as deep decay, dental trauma, repeated dental procedures on your tooth, or a crack or chip in the tooth. Endodontically treated teeth usually require crowns after treatment due to these teeth becoming brittle as time goes on. After treatment the tooth will function normally.
