Root canal to the rescue

A root canal treatment can save a damaged or infected tooth and keep your smile healthy for years to come.

What is a root canal?

A root canal is a common procedure to remove the soft tissue in the inner part of your tooth called the dental pulp. You may need a root canal when the pulp becomes infected or inflamed. Successful root canal therapy will save a natural tooth so you can live confidently and enjoy life to the fullest.

Why do I need a root canal?

When bacteria enters a tooth through a crack or deep cavity, the pulp can become infected or inflamed. You may feel pain or experience swelling. Other times, the bacteria can damage the bone that holds your tooth in place without causing pain. That’s why it’s important to contact your local Aspen Dental if you ever injure a tooth or have problems with a filling.
