Root Canal Therapy (Endodontics)

What is endodontic therapy?

Perhaps you’ve more commonly heard of this as a root canal. When a tooth has become overwhelmed by infection or a traumatic event, it often creates damage and decay to a nerve. When this nerve damage occurs, it needs to be removed from the tooth before bacteria continues to enter and creates further damage. 

The most important aspect of a root canal is that a seal is created to prevent bacteria from entering in the future. Typically, a crown is also necessary to structurally support a tooth after a root canal has been completed. Root canals can sometimes seem daunting for patients, especially when one hasn’t experienced a root canal before. However, the dental experts at South University Dental are committed to making the root canal process as safe and comfortable as possible, providing top-notch care for all patients.
