Relieve Your Tooth Pain

A tooth that has become infected is dangerous to the tooth – and to your overall health. If you are suffering from a toothache, the cause must be identified, and a treatment performed to bring you relief.

In many cases, a root canal procedure is necessary. This process involves removing the infected material within the tooth and root. A crown is then placed to protect the tooth structure for the long term.

Root Canal

While your teeth are developing and growing, the soft tissue at their center, known as pulp, plays a vital role. A procedure known as a root canal may be necessary if the pulp in a tooth becomes inflamed or infected.


Post and Crown

After a root canal procedure may be needed when a tooth has become infected. After a root canal is performed, the tooth structure must be restored, often requiring what is termed a post and crown.
