Root canal Services in Renton

Root canal therapy
When the pulp of the tooth has been infected, root canal therapy is the best choice for removing infection, saving your tooth, and keeping your mouth and smile healthy.

Tooth with Root CanalCauses of infection
The pulp becomes infected when bacteria invade the inner layers of the tooth. Infection occurs most commonly through a deep cavity that allows bacteria through the enamel and dentin layers into the pulp. Sometimes the pulp simply dies due to a fracture or a blow to the tooth.

Treatment options:

Save the tooth through root canal treatment

Remove the tooth
An extraction is only a short-term solution because teeth need each other for support. While an extraction does remove the infection, a missing tooth sets off a chain reaction of shifting teeth, increasing the risk for decay and gum disease.

Delaying treatment
If you choose to delay treatment, you should know that an infected tooth will never heal on its own. As the infection spreads down the tooth and into your jawbone, the pain may significantly increase. Dental infections should never be ignored as they can become more wide-spread and potentially life threatening.
