Root Canal Therapy & More

Endodontics is the dental specialty that deals with nerves of the teeth. Root canal therapy is probably the most notorious procedure in dentistry and the most common endodontic procedure. When a tooth becomes infected, it is usually related to the nerves in the root of the tooth. The infected nerves need to be removed. If left untreated, an infection can cause tooth pain and turn into an abscess, which is a much more serious problem that includes bone loss in the jaw.

"Root canal" has long been a scary term for many dental patients, but the benefits of the procedure and advances in dental technology and pain medication have made it nearly painless. There may be some soreness following the procedure, but that is normal for most dental procedures. Other endodontic procedures include root canal retreatment for those few root canal procedures that fail, and apicoectomy. At Crescent City Smiles, your comprehensive smile care includes endodontic root canal therapy, when necessary.
