Family Dentistry

Endodontics (Root Canals)


When the inner most part of a tooth (the nerve) is injured or infected (or we anticipate this) debilitating pain can result. The nerve is encapsulated within hard tooth with only a small opening to the jaw for blood flow. When increased blood flow happens due to injury or infection, pressure builds within the hard tooth resulting in pain. This pain ⁄ infection can only be resolved by removal of the nerve through extraction of the entire tooth or removal of the nerve by making a small hole in the top of the tooth and filling out the inner injured / infected position (a root canal).
