Root canal therapy is an endodontic treatment that can effectively restore severely infected and damaged teeth. If the dental pulp inside a tooth has become infected, root canal therapy can improve the tooth’s function and health. To restore the tooth, your experienced Paterson dentists will remove the infected portion of the dental pulp, fill in the tooth, seal the tooth, and cap it with a dental crown to protect the tooth and improve its structure. Root canal therapy can prevent the need for tooth extraction and stop the infection from spreading to other areas of the mouth.
