Sometimes tooth decay or physical damage can cause the nerve within a tooth to become infected. When this happens, a successful root canal treatment lets you keep the tooth rather than having to pull it out. Keeping your tooth helps to prevent your other teeth from drifting out of line and causing jaw problems. Saving a natural tooth avoids having to replace it with an artificial tooth.
To do this, the dentist will clean the damaged tissues from within the infected tooth and make it sterile before sealing it up so it cannot become infected again. After a successful root canal the tooth can be rebuilt. Depending on the amount of damage the surface of the tooth has suffered, your tooth can rebuilt with an inlay or onlay or a full dental crown.
Restorative services like root canals, fillings, crowns and bridges are all performed with appropriate anesthesia to minimize our patients’ discomfort.
