A root canal is the removal of a tooth’s damaged, diseased to dead pulp located in the center of the tooth. If the infected or dead pulp is left untreated, an abscess can form and destroy the bone surrounding the tooth. It can cause a great deal of pain. Root canal treatments save many teeth that would be lost otherwise.

Periodontal disease is caused by bacteria and plaque that invade the gums. It can not only cause severe damage to both teeth and gums but also has been associated with other health problems such as respiratory infections, diabetes and heart disease. Regular dental cleanings, good oral hygiene, daily flossing and brushing can help reduce the risk of gum disease.
