A Root Canal (or sometimes call endodontics)– can save your tooth, which is always preferred over tooth loss. How is this accomplished?
The dentist carefully and completely removes the inflamed or infected pulp, then cleans and shapes the inside of the canal (the canal is the chamber inside the root of the tooth). The endodontist then fills and seals the space. After this procedure, a crown or other restoration on the tooth is advised to protect and restore it to full function. After restoration, the tooth continues to function like any other tooth.BOOK AN APPOINTMENT
