How Root Canal Therapy Helps
The pain that’s relieved by root canal therapy is usually caused by decay, infection, or dental damage that has accessed the innermost layer of a tooth, the pulp, where the nerve is housed. When bacteria or trauma reaches the nerve, the result is often a severe toothache. Root canal therapy begins by removing the painful, infected pulp. Then, the tooth is refilled with a biocompatible substance. Finally, we reseal the tooth, and in most cases, we place a dental crown to protect and strengthen it.
