Root Canal Treatments

A common fix for toothache is root canal treatment. Root canal treatment is normally required when the nerve dies inside a tooth. Nerve death commonly leads to abscess formation and facial swelling (this is a dental emergency and treatment should be sought immediately) and is most commonly caused by tooth decay, but is sometimes a result of trauma as well. Root canal treatment gives you the option of saving your tooth as opposed to extraction. The treatment normally involves two-three appointments, but the toothache or pain is usually alleviated after the first appointment. The dead rotting nerve is removed and the nerve canal is filled with an inert rubber material. Call your local Team Dental office to make an appointment today
