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
- We’ll clean out the inner area, removing any bacteria and dead nerve or pulp tissue that may be causing you pain.
- Then we’ll fill the inner portions and seal it to prevent further damage.
- 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.
