With the help of modern technology and equipment, deeply decayed teeth can often be saved by a procedure called Root Canal Therapy or Endodontics.
Root Canal Therapy
Root Canal Therapy involves removing the inflamed nerve and cleaning the ‘canals’ of your tooth when the nerve has been affected by decay.
Root Canal Treatment often takes 1-3 visits. During these visits, dressing may be used to control inflammation and discomfort.
Crowns and Bridges
Posterior teeth will require crowns after Root Canal Treatment in order to strengthen the already weakened tooth structure. They will help to protect your teeth from sensitivity and further damage as well as restoring biting functions.
