What Is Root Canal Therapy?

Published on May 4, 2018

Maintaining good oral health is one of the best ways to make sure you have healthy teeth and a great smile. If you do not maintain good oral health, you may develop an infection that requires root canal therapy to solve.

Root canal therapy is a sequence of treatments designed to remove the infected nerve and blood vessels of a tooth. When the infection, nerve, and blood vessels have been removed from the roots, the hollow roots will be filled and sealed with a material called gutta-percha.

An infected tooth can adversely affect your overall oral health. It’s important that you fight the infection before it can do more damage. If you’re interested in learning more about root canal therapy, contact Peak Family Dentistry to schedule your consultation today.
