Root Canal Therapy
The dentists at RGV Smiles have a high rate of success when it comes to root canal therapy. During the procedure the diseased tissue on the tooth is removed, preventing the spread of infection and restoring the healthy part of the tooth. RGV Smiles can save a problem tooth with root canal therapy.
A Root Canal
A root canal is a tiny passageway that branches off from beneath the top of the tooth making its way vertically downward until it reaches the tip of the root. In average, all teeth have between one to four root canals.
Many root canal problems are created by infections that spread to the pulp, or the inner chamber of the tooth containing blood vessels, nerves and other sensitive tissues. When the infection gets worse the roots are ultimately affected.
