Root Canal Therapy

Solomons Dentist

Root canal therapy is a treatment of the center of the tooth that is inflamed, infected or dead. The center of the tooth, called the pulp, is a soft substance that consists of nerve, blood vessels and connective tissue. Symptoms of the infection include visible injury or swelling of the tooth and sensitivity to temperature or pain in the tooth and gums. If you experience any of these symptoms, contact our dental office.

Root canal therapy can preserve your tooth for a lifetime. It is a highly successful procedure with more than a 95% success rate.
