Root Canal Therapy is used to treat the nerve of teeth that are infected or severely decayed. Root Canal Therapy can help save a tooth that would otherwise need to be removed. The process involves removing the pulp, bacteria, nerves, and decay from the tooth, and replacing it with medicine to help repair the damage.
Under certain conditions, Root Canal Therapy is a much better alternative to extraction because it can be more cost effective, it saves the tooth, and prevent issues from developing with surrounding teeth. During your dental exam, we will be able to recommend whether or not Root Canal Therapy is a good option for you.
