Remove an Infected Tooth to Prevent Further Injury
When a tooth becomes severely infected, a root canal removes the nerve of the tooth to prevent a serious abscess or loss of teeth. Although root canals are notorious for being 'painful,' in actuality they help to efficiently relieve pain caused from traumatic injury, untreated cavities, or cracks and breaks. Once the nerve has been removed, a crown is recommended to strengthen the repaired tooth. You can always contact our office to talk through the right option for your needs.
