Root Canals

shutterstock_114694648A root canal may be necessary in cases of degenerative decay to the dental pulp of a tooth or series of teeth. Dental pulp is the soft tissue within the tooth that contains nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue. Damage to a tooth’s dental pulp may occur from infection, oral neglect or injury and must be treated in a timely manner. Thanks to advances in dental technology, Dr. Lewis is able to perform root canals painlessly and evasively with the help of his experienced staff.
