Dr. Les Walker, our visiting endodontist, specializes in providing endodontic treatments. The most common endodontic treatment is the root canal. Root canal treatment becomes necessary when the nerve of a tooth has become affected by infection or decay. When performed, a root canal can restore the function of the tooth without causing any future problems with the surrounding teeth. After the root canal, we often place a crown in order to protect the weaker natural tooth.
