Teeth typically have one to four canals, which is the space inside each tooth that travels from the center to the apex (or tip of the root). Root canal therapy is often prescribed for a number of problems that occur in this canal; including decay, abscess, trauma, or a tooth is slowly dying. Your dentist will determine if root canal therapy is needed. Please communicate with your dentist about any questions or concerns you may have regarding dental problems such as an abscess tooth, tooth decay, or cracked tooth. At Lucky Dental, we take great pride in offering personalized dental treatment to each individual client.
