Root canal therapy is the process of removing nerve tissue from inside the tooth. There are many reasons that a tooth may need a root canal. These include, but are not limited to:
- Deep tooth decay that extends into the nerve
- Cracked teeth
- Trauma to a tooth
- Infection inside the tooth
Some of the signs that may indicate the need for a root canal are:
- Lingering pain when exposed to hot or cold food
- Pain upon biting
- A raised pimple on the gum by the tooth
- Spontaneous pain that may keep you up at night
Once the root canal is completed, it is recommended that you get a dental crown. The crown will preserve the strength of the tooth.
Dental implants are an effective method to replace a single tooth or several teeth. Each implant consists of a titanium anchor that is placed into the underlying bone, and a crown placed on top of the anchor. Implants look and function like natural teeth, and they have a success rate that is greater than 95%.
The removal of a tooth is always our last choice but sometimes necessary.
