Root Canal Treatment
Root canal therapy is necessary when the nerves are affected by decay or infection. In order to save the tooth, the pulp, nerves, bacteria, and any decay are removed and the resulting space is filled with special, medicated, dental materials, and this process will restore the tooth to be fully functional.
Choosing to have a root canal can save a tooth that otherwise would die and have to be removed. Many patients believe that removing a tooth is the only solution. Many do not realize that pulling a tooth can cause more problems for your remaining teeth.
