Root Canal Procedure
Root Canal Procedure is necessary when the pulp (soft tissue inside your teeth containing blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue) becomes inflamed or diseased. During root canal treatment, your dentist or endodontist (a dentist who specializes in treating the insides of teeth) removes the diseased pulp. The pulp chamber and root canal(s) of the tooth are then cleaned and sealed. If the infected pulp is not removed, pain and swelling can result, and your tooth may have to be removed.
Causes of an infected pulp could include:
- a deep cavity
- repeated dental procedures
- a cracked or broken tooth
- injury to the tooth (even if there’s not a visible crack or chip)
Dental implants are a popular and effective way to replace missing teeth and are designed to blend in with your other teeth.
If you’re missing one or more teeth, you may notice a difference in chewing and speaking. Bridges can help restore your smile.

Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. It is a major cause of tooth loss in adults.

Dental sealants act as a barrier to prevent cavities. They are a plastic material usually applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (premolars and molars) where decay occurs most often.
Veneers are thin, custom-made shells crafted of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front side of teeth.
