Root canal therapy may be performed on a significantly damaged or infected tooth in order to restore the tooth without requiring extraction. Root canal therapy is necessary when decay causes extensive damage to the tooth structure that cannot be repaired with a filling. Dr. Bleu may recommend a root canal to treat one or more of the following conditions:
- Significant injury or trauma
- An abscess or infection within the tooth
- Decay inside the tooth’s pulp
The root canal procedure involves removing the infected or dead dental pulp in the tooth and filling it to strengthen the tooth and restore functionality.
