Some time ago, if you had a tooth with a diseased nerve you would most probably loose the tooth. Nowadays, with special dental procedure – root canal therapy – we can help you save the tooth. Inside each tooth is the pulp which provides nerves and nutrients to the tooth. When the pulp is injured or diseased the pulp tissue dies and if you don’t remove it, that tooth could get infected and you could lose that tooth. After the dentist removes the pulp, the root canal is cleaned and sealed in order to protect it. Afterwards, a crown is placed over the tooth in order to make that tooth stronger.
