Good oral and dental hygiene is essential in preventing gum disease, tooth decay, and bad breath. A good routine of brushing and flossing at home is very important, but these are often not enough to keep your mouth free from disease-causing bacteria.

Root canal therapy is needed when the nerve of a tooth is affected by decay or infection. You may feel pain in the affected area or the tooth may be sensitive to hot or cold. Even though the tooth has become severely damaged, it is still possible to save it.

Root canal treatment is highly successful, and the results usually last a lifetime.
