Root Canals Under General Anesthesia

Root canal treatment is necessary when decay will likely damage or has already killed a tooth. During a root canal, the pulp from the center of a tooth is removed and the resulting pulp cavity is filled with other material. This can prevent the development of a painful infection in the pulp that may spread to other teeth. A root canal can also treat an infection that has developed into an abscessed tooth. This procedure can relieve a toothache, stop an infection, and promote healing.
