Root Canal Treatment
When tooth decay or disease reaches the pulp (nerve) of the tooth or surrounding structures, most patients will experience a very unmistakable pain. When this happens, usually a root canal is needed to save your natural tooth and resolve the pain. In this procedure, the tooth decay is removed, then the diseased nerve tissue is removed. Following this, the vacant space is filled, followed by placement of a dental crown to match the design of your other existing teeth.
