Endodontic Therapy

When decay has reached the nerve of your tooth or an infection develops at the root, endodontic therapy (root canal treatment) may be necessary. If you are experiencing a severe tooth ache or abscess, the nerve along with the bacteria within the tooth may need to be removed. This will help alleviate pain, eliminate the infection, and prevent your tooth from being extracted. Following root canal treatment, a dental crown is needed to provide strength and stability to your tooth.
