Root Canal Therapy (RCT)

Root Canal Therapy Treatment is needed when decay has progressed into the nerve of the tooth. Root Canal Treatment involves removal of the nerve from the center of a tooth and the dentist then proceeds to seal the roots closed. This can prevent the onset of a painful dental infection in the nerve that may spread into the bone and surrounding tissue. Root Canal Treatment can also treat an infection that has developed into a dental abscess.

Signs and symptoms root canal therapy may be needed include:

  • Tooth pain
  • Swelling
  • Pressure
  • Pain upon biting
  • Sensitivity to temperature
  • Graying or discolored tooth
  • Abscess or pimple on gums
