Root Canals

Every tooth has at least one root. A large molar in the back of the mouth can have up to four roots. An abscess can form at a tooth’s root, causing inflammation and pain. When this happens, our dentists clean out the canals of the affected tooth, treat the abscess, fill the canal with gutta percha (a rubber-like material), top it off with filling, and cap the tooth with a new crown so that it won’t break. In some more complicated cases, our doctors may refer you to an endodontist (root canal specialist).
