are required to treat a severely infected and decayed tooth, in an effort to save the tooth. During a root canal, our dental team works to remove an infected nerve ( pulp), and clean the inside of your tooth structure. After the infection is removed, we clean the inside of the tooth and disinfect it, then seal it with sterile material to prevent any additional damage. Endodontic treatment is an essential part of protecting your existing teeth and maintaining your oral health. Root Canal treatments usually take 1-2 visits to complete depending on the severity of the infection.
