Root Canal Treatment

Most commonly referred to as a root canal, endodontic treatment will be required when the nerve of a tooth has become infected. This treatment is recommended so that the tooth can be saved rather than extracted; it is important to make the best efforts to keep your teeth as you want to avoid them from shifting out of line. The shifting of your teeth will change how you bite and may cause jaw pain.

A root canal treated tooth will be more prone to fractures, but can be reinforced with a post and a porcelain crown.
