Root Canal Therapy
When the pulp (soft tissue at the center of a tooth) becomes inflamed, infected or dies, root canal therapy is necessary to save the tooth.
Your natural teeth are composed of several distinct layers – there’s the outer protection of the enamel, a layer of more sensitive dentin underneath, and finally a safely hidden pulp. If a patient experiences a traumatic dental injury or infection that’s severe enough to reach this vulnerable pulp layer, extraction becomes a very real risk. In these cases an Endodontic treatment, more commonly known as root canal therapy could be a solution to save your tooth.
