Root Canal Therapy in West End, Boston, MA

What is Root Canal Therapy?

Root canal therapy is a procedure where a dentist removes bad bacteria from the pulp of a tooth. That bacteria forms inside of the tooth for many reasons. Poor dental health is one of the most common causes. Also, when someone does not fix a cracked tooth, it is easier for bad bacteria to enter and attack the tooth from the inside out. An untreated infection inside of a tooth makes it painful, discolored and could eventually lead to the loss of that tooth. After root canal therapy is completed, you will have a better chance of preserving the original tooth. In some cases, you may need to have a crown placed on top of the affected tooth to cover up any imperfections or discoloration.

At our office we will evaluate your tooth pain and may diagnose the need to see an endodontic specialist for root canal therapy. If you are experiencing tooth pain, please schedule a consultation with our office.
