A tooth that has been greatly damaged by tooth decay and infection will likely suffer damage to its nerve. When this happens, the very life of the tooth is threatened. Tissue and nerves inside the tooth will be eaten away by bacteria. To save the tooth, a root canal is necessary.
During a root canal, damage tissue and nerves are taken out and the space left behind is filled with special medicated materials that will straighten and restore your tooth.
SAVE YOUR TOOTH You may need root canal therapy if notice any of the following: - Abscesses on the gums - Sensitivity to temperature - Severe toothache/pain - Swelling/tenderness
Sometimes nerve damage may be taking place without warning for any symptoms. Make sure to get a regular checkup with your dentist to spot signs of tooth decay and infection.
