Root Canal Treatment

During a root canal, Dr. Harris will remove decay and bacteria in and around your tooth and fill it will material to help restore your tooth's original strength, look, and function.  

Fractures or trauma, in addition to decay and infection, can sometimes cause the need for a root canal.  Some of these problems, however, are hard to notice ourselves.  Here is a list of signs to look for which may indicate a diseased or decaying tooth:

  • an abscess on your gums
  • pain while chewing
  • severe toothache
  • hot/cold sensitivity
  • swelling or tenderness around your tooth

If you have any of the symptoms above, or have questions about root canals, please give us a call today.
