Root Canals:

If the nerve or pulp of a tooth becomes infected or abscessed, a root canal may be necessary to save the tooth . Nerve damage can be caused by a deep decay, a cracked tooth, or a stong impact to the tooth. If you decide not to save the tooth, the only other option to Root Canal Therapy is an extraction.


The tooth is numbed before Root Canal Therapy is started. The dentist removes the unhealthy nerve and medicates the inside of the tooth to disinfect and clean the canals. The the root system is sealed and filled with a rubber like filling material.


After Root Canal Therapy the tooth becomes brittle and will need a crown to protect the tooth and make it stonger.
