Root Canal Therapy

A root canal is a treatment designed to repair and save a badly infected or damaged tooth, and offers a potential alternative to extraction. The term "root canal" comes from the cleaning that occurs to the canals inside of the affected tooth's root. While the procedure carries the reputation as causing a lot of discomfort, advances in dentistry and local anesthetics now make root canal procedures nearly pain free. In fact, most patients experience far more discomfort living with a damaged tooth than they experience treating the underlying issue. Alternative treatments to a root canal include tooth extraction and the eventual replacement of the tooth with a dental bridge, implant, or partial denture.
