What Is A Root Canal?
Root canals are an important procedure that can help to save your tooth and protect surrounding tissue. Sometimes, a cavity is so deep that the pulp (the soft tissue inside the tooth) becomes inflamed or infected. When this occurs, a root canal is usually needed to save the tooth. If left untreated, the diseased pulp tissue can spread infection to gums, other teeth, and even your jawbone.
During the root canal procedure, Dr. White will carefully remove the infected pulp and seal the tooth—often with a dental crown. This treatment can help to save your natural tooth, allowing you to continue enjoying efficient chewing, a normal bite and a healthy-looking smile.
