San Jose Root Canals
Root Canal Treatment in San Jose
A tooth's nerve and pulp which is located in the center of the tooth called the root canal, can become irritated and infected if there is deep decay, chips or cracks to the tooth, or if too many dental procedures have been performed on that tooth.

If at all possible, our first course of action is to save a tooth that has become damaged or infected, and we may recommend a root canal be performed as a way to save the tooth. During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and then sealed. If left untreated, the tissue surrounding the tooth can become infected and an abscess could occur.

A tooth's nerve is not important to a tooth's health and function after the tooth has emerged through the gums. Its only function is to provide the sensation of hot or cold and the absence of this nerve will not affect the chewing function of that tooth.
