Years ago, badly infected teeth were removed or extracted. With today’s technology, a majority of these teeth can be salvaged by a special dental procedure called a Root Canal or Root Canal Therapy.
When do you need a root canal?
Root Canal Therapy is needed when a tooth’s nerve and associated blood vessels are irrevocably damaged either by trauma to the tooth or because of a deep cavity. This results in infection that may lead to an abscess at the base of the tooth.
