What is root canal treatment?

Many people have a negative association with the word root canal, but what is it really?  Root canals can be the most successful way to save your tooth if it has become badly infected or decayed. During your root canal treatment, Dr. Harris will remove the tooth's nerve and pulp (center part of your tooth), and then clean and seal it.

Sometimes if an infected or decaying tooth is not treated, it may lead to infections or abscessess of the bone tissue.  Dr. Harris will discuss with you the best options for you if you have an infection, and will thoroughly explain any procedure deemed necessary.
