When tooth decay and damage extends through the outer enamel and dentine layers of a tooth into the inner pulp layer, a root canal is your best option. It will alleviate your pain and prevent further damage without having to actually remove the tooth itself.
How Root Canals Work
1. We will clean out the inner area, removing any bacteria and dead nerve or pulp
tissue that may be causing you pain.
2. Then we will fill the inner portions and seal it to prevent further damage.
3. A crown may then be required as the tooth can become brittle. But don't worry; we can handle that too!
In the end, we eliminate the pain you're experiencing while preserving your existing teeth and your smile.
