Dr. Hood and his associates use the latest root canal technology and procedures to treat and preserve teeth with badly infected roots.
The pulp is the live portion of the tooth that extends into the root and contains nerve endings and tissues. When it becomes infected, patients can experience pain, swelling, and even total tooth loss unless treated.
Root canals remove the damaged parts of the tooth and infected root.
The organic portion, of the tooth that remains, may be restored using a crown that provides a natural appearance and normal tooth function.
