At Bridge Dental Centers root canal therapy is actually a pain-free, quick and comfortable procedure on the contrary to the common beliefs. In fact, it relieves tooth pain and can prevent more complicated oral issues later on.

The procedure involves removing the damaged area of the tooth (the pulp), cleaning and disinfecting it and then filling and sealing it. If left untreated, the infection can cause severe tooth pain, swelling of the face and neck, bone loss around the roots of teeth and tooth sensitivity.
