Root Canal Medford OR

Root canal therapy is one of the most common dental procedures performed, well over 14 million every year. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need for dental implants or bridges.

At the center of your tooth is the pulp. The pulp is a collection of soft tissue, blood vessels, and nerve tissue that helps to build and nourish the surrounding tooth. Infection or irreversible inflammation of the pulp can be caused by trauma to the tooth, deep decay, cracks and chips, or repeated dental procedures. A sign of infection can be the swelling of the gum tissue adjacent to the tooth, either with or without pain; symptoms of inflammatory pulpal disease can be sensitivity to temperature, biting pain, or spontaneous pain. Pain can even be referred to adjacent teeth or teeth above or below the affected tooth on the same side.
