For a long time, a tooth that had a diseased nerve would have to be pulled. Thanks to advances in modern dentistry, that’s no longer the case. Now your tooth can be saved thanks to a root canal procedure.
When the pulp of a tooth is diseased or injured, the pulp tissue dies. If you don’t address it right away, you run the risk of losing the tooth. The best way to ensure that your tooth is saved is by getting a root canal.
During a root canal, a dentist will remove the nerve and affected tissue. After the root has been cleaned out it will be sealed to protect it. From there, a custom-made crown will be placed over the tooth to help keep it strong.
If you think you might need a root canal, don’t wait any longer. Contact us at Dental and Facial Aesthetics of South Florida today to schedule an appointment to meet with one of our trained dentists.
