Endodontic Treatment (root canal therapy)

Diagnosing and treating root canals in Hilliard and Upper Arlington, Ohio

A root canal is the tooth’s natural cavity, which is located in the center of a tooth. When a root canal becomes infected, a root canal treatment is needed to reconstruct and repair the infected tooth. There are several reasons why a person would need root canal treatment. Root canal causes may include: having a cracked or broken tooth, developing a deep cavity or having repeated dental procedures in the affected area.

If a person has an infection in their tooth’s root it is important that they have a root canal treatment performed to remove the bacteria causing the infection. If bacteria is not removed, serious complications, such as swelling of the face, head and neck and bone loss, can occur.
