At V2 Family & Cosmetic Dentistry of McMinnville, Oregon, our mission is to keep your mouth as healthy as possible. Therefore, we offer turnkey treatments for root canals to avoid potential infection and save the tooth from extraction.
An Essential Procedure
Root canal treatment is necessary when the soft tissue inside the root canal becomes inflamed or infected. The inflammation or infection can have a variety of causes, such as deep decay, repeated dental procedures on the tooth, or a crack or chip in the tooth.
In addition, an injury to a tooth may cause pulp damage even if the tooth has no visible chips or cracks. If pulp inflammation or infection is left untreated, it can cause pain or lead to an abscess.
