Root Canal Therapy
We provide pain-free root canal treatment in Michigan.
Why have Root Canal Therapy?
At the center of your teeth there is a core of blood vessels and nerves which is called pulp and is in a space called the root canal. The untreated tooth with tooth injury or with deep decay will lead to the pulp damage and the blood vessels may die. A ‘dead’ tooth is likely to get infected. Without treatment, a dental abscess can form as the bacteria, multiply and be forced beyond the end of the root. As the abscess tries to expand within the bone, the tooth may rise slightly out of its socket and feel tender when you bite down. If left untreated, there is a high chance of infection spreading to the nerves and surrounding area.
Common Indications You May Need a Root Canal:
- Recurring trouble with a tooth
- Sharp pain when chewing and apply pressure to a tooth
- Tooth sensitivity to hot and/or cold
- Swelling, tenderness or a bump on the gums
