ROOT CANAL (ENDODONTICS) THERAPY
Root canal treatment is a common prescription for abscessed teeth. Abscessed teeth have infected tissue (pulp) in the center. This causes pain and/or swelling. During root canal treatment, the tooth is opened and infected tissue removed. The space is then filled and the opening sealed. A crown may be placed to protect the tooth. A tooth that has had a root canal treatment can last a lifetime! Come in to see Dr. Dixon here in Morrilton, and find out if root canal treatment is right for you.
