Tooth decay or other trauma create open gates for bacteria to reach the inner part of the tooth. When nerves and blood vessels inside the tooth are damaged by bacterial contamination, the tooth, in most instances, be comes painful.

The goal of root canal procedures (endodontic treatments) is to save a painful tooth by removing pulp tissue comprised of nerves and blood vessels from canals inside the teeth. The canals are then cleaned, shaped and filled with a special material, and the toot his restored, usually with a crown. Occasionally, the root tip must be removed surgically.

In most cases, using our reciprocal system from VDW, this procedure can be performed in a single visit. In some instances, however, the procedure might require up to three visits.
