Root Canal Therapy
A root canal is a dental treatment that is used to cure an infection in the pulp of a tooth. The pulp is the interior portion of a tooth where the nerve cells are found. A tooth that needs a root canal is usually excruciatingly painful. The goal of a root canal treatment is to eliminate the infection and preserve the tooth from being extracted. A crown is generally required to protect the treated tooth from additional harm, restore full function, and produce natural-looking aesthetics.
If you have tooth discomfort when chewing or speaking, there’s a good chance you have an infection that needs to be treated. Bacteria enter the pulp when decay or other forms of tooth damage allow them in.
Our Dentist Chapel Hill NC will examine you and utilize imaging technology to determine if you require a root canal.
