Image Dental assists you with all aspects of your oral health, including routine checkups, fillings, cosmetic dentistry and root canal treatments when needed.
We always work hard to preserve the natural structure of the tooth, and in some cases, root canal treatment can be an excellent way to do this.
A root canal is recommended when the pulp, the soft tissue inside the root canal of a tooth, is infected. This can be caused by deep decay, repeated dental procedures, a crack or chip in the tooth, or an injury. Left untreated, this type of inflammation or infection is very painful and leads to abscess and tooth loss. Root canal treatment is the removal of the pulp.

Root canal treatment is a tried and true method of treating dental issues that can eliminate pain, reduce the spread of infection and save the tooth.
