Do you have a tooth that is quickly dying from decay or infection? We offer root canal treatment to save your tooth and restore its full functionality!

A root canal is needed when the nerve of the tooth becomes infected and the pulp becomes damaged. When this happens, the pulp breaks down and the bacteria multiply within the pulp chamber. This causes a large amount of infection and can also form a pus-filled pocket at the end of the tooth’s root. The infection can cause: swelling that can spread to other areas, bone loss around the tip of the root, and drainage problems which can form a hole on the side of the tooth. It is very important to have root canal therapy at Tom Brooks DMD to avoid any of these horrible characteristics of infection.

If you have a severe toothaches when you chew or apply pressure, prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures, darkening of the tooth, swelling and tenderness in the gums, and a recurring pimple on the nearby gums, we suggest coming in to see Dr. Tom Brooks for root canal treatment.
