When decay or damage extends through the outer enamel and dentine layers of a tooth into the inner pulp layer, a root canal can be the best way to eliminate your pain and prevent further damage without removing the tooth itself. During the procedure we clean out this inner area of any bacteria and dead nerve or pulp tissue that are causing you pain. Once this is done, we’ll fill in the inner portions and seal it to prevent further damage.
Following this procedure, the tooth becomes brittle requiring a crown be placed on it. We can take care of that too. In the end, we eliminate the pain you’re experiencing while preserving your existing teeth and your smile.
Contact us if you have a persistent toothache, sensitivity, or tenderness that normal fillings have not corrected, and we’ll walk you through the procedures available to you.
