At Towngate Dentall, we will do everything we can to save a damaged or infected tooth. One of the tooth saving treatments we commonly employ is called root canal therapy.
Inside each of your teeth there is dental pulp. Dental pulp has many important functions, such as providing your teeth with nerves and nutrients. If the dental pulp becomes damaged, it can become infected and possibly die, which can cause your tooth to also die and that in many cases leads to infection and pain.
To prevent your teeth from having to be extracted, we can perform root canal therapy to save the tooth. This involves removing the damaged inner dental pulp and replacing it with resin so your tooth hard structure stays intact. Once the diseased pulp is cleaned out, the dentist will add a protective dental crown to protect the tooths’ chewing surface
