Patients need root canal treatment when bacteria infect the tooth’s pulp. Tooth pulp consists of blood, connective tissues, and the nerve at the tooth’s root.
If the tooth’s pulp or soft tissue becomes infected, a dentist will remove all the bacteria and disinfect the root. Next, they will fill and seal the space and apply a crown. To reduce your risk of needing a root canal, stay up-to-date on your regular dental cleanings. Gordon Family Dentistry is your root canal specialist, making the root canal treatment process as comfortable as possible.
