What Is Root Canal Therapy?

Root canal therapy is a procedure in which we remove damaged pulp from inside a tooth’s root canals. Once we remove the pulp, we fill in the tooth with a material called gutta percha that prevents future infection in the area. While root canal therapy may sound intimidating, it’s actually nothing to fear. Root canals can preserve your natural tooth and give you almost-instant pain relief caused by the diseased pulp!

Signs You May Need a Root Canal

Wondering if you’re in need of a root canal? While every patient is different, there are some common signs that you can look out for, including:

  • Appearance of Abscess (Bump) on Gums
  • Sharp Tooth Pain when Chewing
  • Sudden Blackening of Tooth
  • Swollen or Tender Gums
  • Throbbing, Persistent Toothache

If you’re currently experiencing any of the above symptoms, please call our office right away!
