Benefits of Having Root Canal Therapy

RCT treats diseases and abscesses in the teeth and mouth. Inside the tooth is a soft tissue called the ‘pulp’. The pulp is crucial to the full growth and development of the tooth, as it contains blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue. Once the tooth is fully developed, the tooth can survive without the pulp.

Unfortunately, sometimes the pulp gets inflamed or infected, and can cause excruciating pain:

  • Pain while chewing
  • Pain in ears or head
  • Pain while lying down
  • Severe pain while eating hot or cold foods/drinks
  • Swelling of the gums surrounding the tooth

We have in-house certification for Nitrous and IV sedation to meet all your needs.
