Root Canals

The nerve of a tooth can become diseased if a tooth cracks or has a deep cavity. Bacteria from these sources can enter into the nerve and cause an infection that may or may not cause pain.

 

In some cases it can also be caused by past trauma to the face in that area such as a car accident or impact from a sporting activity.

 

A root canal is a dental procedure that carefully removes the infected nerve tissue and cleans and seals the tooth, making it possible to save your tooth.

 

If the tooth is damaged badly enough, the doctor may recommend a crown to also support and protect the tooth from further damage.
