Root canal treatment, or endodontic therapy, becomes necessary when the nerves of the tooth become infected or injured due to cavities, fractures, or other factors. Our dentist at Scott Ellard Dentistry can perform a root canal to restore the function of your tooth and prevent further damage and extraction.
