Endodontics is the treatment of the pulp and surrounding tissues of a tooth. When root canal therapy is performed, the pulp of the tooth is removed and the inside of the root is thoroughly cleaned. Once adequately disinfected, the inside of the root is sealed with a suitable filling material.

Root canal treatment is most often necessary when decay has reached the pulp of the tooth or the tooth has become infected. People have anywhere from 1 to 4 canals in a tooth. Extra canals may branch out and are called “accessory canals.” The number of canals and anatomy of a tooth can vary.

Call 925-676-3388 to schedule an appointment.
