Root Canals Will Save a Tooth
It is now well recognized that saving a tooth, if at all possible, is essential to avoid other dental problems later on. In the past, a tooth with damaged or infected roots was extracted, but today's advanced therapies will save it. During this procedure, the interior pulp of the tooth is removed and replaced with a special filling material. Sometimes a crown is necessary to put over the tooth to give it added strength. Patients need dread this treatment no longer. Modern techniques and advanced anesthetics make it easy and less time consuming for patients, and your natural tooth will be saved and fully functional again.
