Endodontic or Root Canal Therapy

Endodontic or Root Canal Therapy


Endodontic therapy, commonly known as a “root canal”, is necessary when the pulp tissues (nerves, soft tissue, and blood vessels) inside the tooth become inflamed or infected. This can result from many causes: deep decay or cavities, numerous dental procedures on a single tooth, a cracked or broken tooth, or a blow or injury directly to the tooth. Left untreated, pulpal inflammation or infection can cause acute and/or chronic pain, or lead to an abscess. Endodontic therapy removes the inflamed/infected pulp, cleans and shapes the inside of the tooth and pulp space, and then seals and fills the space. In many situations, the tooth may need further work, such as a crown, to allow for restoration of full function. The staff at Fiser Family Dental Care is ready to handle any and all of your endodontic needs!
