If you had a tooth with a diseased nerve there is a special dental procedure called a root canal therapy that may save that tooth. The "root canal" refers to the natural cavity in the middle of a tooth. The pulp or pulp chamber is the soft area within the root canal. The tooth's nerve is located within the root canal. Tooth decay, repeated dental procedures, large fillings, cracks, chips and trauma to the face can cause a tooth's nerve and pulp to become irritated, inflamed or infected. If left untreated, the tissue surrounding the tooth will become infected and abscesses may form.
A root canal procedure is a dental procedure used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected. The procedure involves removing the nerve and the pulp from the center of the tooth and then cleaning and sealing it. Our dentist places a crown over the tooth to help make it stronger.
The dentists at Lawrenceville Dental Associates are highly trained in and have extensive experience with root canal procedures. Together with our friendly and professional staff, they successfully provide root canal procedures for patients with decayed or infected teeth.
