Root Canal Treatment
What Causes Root Canal Problems?
What Is Root Canal Therapy?
Once infection is within a tooth, the only cure is to remove the nerve. Clinically known as endodontics, root canal therapy is performed under local anesthetic and usually takes several visits.
A root canal treatment involves drilling a hole into the tooth and removing its soft center (the dental pulp). The dental pulp is made up of connective tissue, nerves, and blood supply, which extends into the root of your tooth. After the pulp is extracted and the bacteria is cleaned, the space is filled and sealed. At ISCAJA Dental, our professional Plantation dentists perform root canal treatments and help restore the functionality of your teeth. In addition, a root canal treatment can save a badly infected or damaged tooth and restore its function.
