Root canal therapy is needed when a tooth is infected, it is mostly related to the soft tissue nerves in the root of the tooth. Inflammation or infection can occur for multiple reasons such as: severe decay, cracked tooth, trauma. The infected nerves should be removed and the canals should be shaped and cleaned. If the tooth remains untreated it becomes symptomatic with pain and an infection can turn into an abscess, which is more serious problem that cause bone loss in the jaw. For treatment your dentist or Endodontist remove the inflamed or infected pulp and clean the canal then fill the canal with biocompatable root filling material. After completion of root canal therapy the tooth needs permanent restoration (filling or Crown) to seal the tooth and make it properly functional.Arlington Advanced Dental Care is always welcoming new patients to our practice and we would love to have you as part of our dental family.
