Root CanalAn Overview
A tooth, unlike most of the rest of the body, has a limited ability to deal with infection or severe damage. The root canal refers to the hollow center of the tooth where the blood vessels and nerves are located. This area, referred to as pulp, can become infected and cause a great deal of pain. The restorative treatment for this condition is called root canal therapy.
Dr. Finlay and Dr. Lim will recommend root canal therapy whenever possible to avoid tooth extraction and maintain the integrity of your smile. Although many patients feel anxious at the thought of a root canal, the many advances made in both technique and materials have advanced the root canal procedure making it less painful and more efficient.
