Root Canals

Crowns can help restore your smile!A root canal can be needed where decay has reached the root or nerve of the tooth.

An opening is made in the crown of the tooth, and the pulp chamber and the root canals are cleaned and shaped for filling. The root canals are then filled and sealed with a rubber-like material to ensure they are completely sealed. In most cases, a filling is done to close off the opening, though in some cases it is better to close off the tooth with a full crown.
