Root Canal Treatment
The words “root canal” can be terrifying for any person. However, at Ewing Dental Associates we have shortened the root canal process into one quick, easy and painless visit. We use the most advanced techniques available including an operating microscope, so that our patients can benefit from the latest in endodontics.
Each tooth consists of three different layers. Starting from the outside, first there is the enamel (the outer layer of each tooth which is the hardest part of the body). The second layer is dentin (the inside hard layer) and then we have the pulp (which is an empty space where the live tissue and nerve of each tooth is located). If the pulp space is exposed to the outside, the tissue will become contaminated and most likely infected. The exposure of pulp can occur when you have a large cavity, or a fractured tooth. The treatment for such occurrences is Root Canal Treatment.
