Sometimes damage occurs in a tooth due to a crack in the tooth from injury or even from a deep cavity. This often causes the tooth to become infected. The infection is found in the pulp of the tooth, which is the nerves and vessels found inside the tooth. This is a call for Root Canal Therapy. Typically when this happens, there is a lot of pain involved. Root Canal therapy is a great treatment for an infected tooth. Root Canals are a wonderful option if you want save the tooth rather than have it pulled.
During a root canal, Dr. Greer will remove the damaged nerves, clean the canals of the tooth, and then seal them. After the root canal is finished, the tooth will then be scanned and we will begin creating your replacement crown.
