ROOT CANAL TREATMENT
SAVE YOUR TEETH!
When a tooth has a deep cavity, bacteria infect the nerve and the pulp. Sometimes, a painful infection spreads to the tooth’s root, creating an abscess. Root canal procedures are performed to prevent tooth loss when the tooth’s nerve becomes infected, or the pulp becomes damaged.
The damaged nerve and pulp are removed, cleaned, sealed, and a special dental filling is placed in the tooth. Then, a dental crown is placed on the tooth to provide strength and support.
Dr. Andrea Diamond’s root canal procedure is comfortable and relaxing. We recommend that our patients visit us every 3-6 months for a complete dental examination to help detect dental problems early.
