Sacramento Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment (also known as endodontic therapy, endodontic treatment, or root canal therapy) is a treatment sequence for the infected pulp of a tooth which is intended to result in the elimination of infection and the protection of the decontaminated tooth from future microbial invasion. Root canals, and their associated pulp chamber, are the physical hollows within a tooth that are naturally inhabited by nerve tissue, blood vessels and other cellular entities. 

Symptoms that indicate a root canal may be necessary include:

  • Throbbing toothache

  • Pain when chewing or biting

  • Heightened sensitivity to heat and cold

  • Persistent bad breath

  • Swelling of lymph nodes in the neck

  • Facial swelling

  • Fever
