Root Canals

Root canals are necessary to treat a tooth that has become infected. Deep cavities and broken or fractured teeth cause most infections. These conditions cause the pulp (the nerve at the center-most part of the tooth) to be exposed to the bacteria and become infected. If left untreated, the pus from the infection can gather at the root tip, causing an abscess (a pus pocket). An abscess can then damage the surrounding bone around the tooth and cause agonizing pain.
