Denver Root Canal Therapy

Root Canal Treatment in Cherry Creek CO


Root canal therapy refers to the process of cleaning out the inner aspects of a tooth: the nerve, pulp tissue and blood supply.
Root canal therapy is needed when the pulp has been damaged from decay or trauma. Once the pulp is damaged it breaks down and bacteria starts to multiply within the pulp space or chamber. Infection or abscess can develop if left untreated.

Warning Signs Of Pulp Damage Can Include: 

  • Pain with chewing or pressure
  • Pain with hot
  • Discoloration of the tooth
  • Swelling of the tissue around the tooth
  • Pulsing or throbbing around the tooth

Root canal therapy will clean out the pulp chamber and seal the tooth off so that bacteria or saliva cannot move from the mouth into the bone or the bone into the mouth. Dr. Peter will examine your tooth, take appropriate radiographs and determine the need for root canal therapy. He may refer you to the appropriate board-certified specialist depending on the degree of difficulty of the procedure needed in your particular tooth.
