Treatment for Nerve Damage

When the “pulp” or space inside the tooth becomes badly decayed or infected, root canal therapy may be required to save the tooth. Though the term “root canal” is often dreaded by dental patients around the world.  However, Dr. Alkass makes this procedure as pain-free and worry-free as possible. During a root canal, the pulp and nerve are removed from the tooth. After this, the tooth is cleaned and sealed to prevent any subsequent infections from occurring. If an infected or badly decaying tooth is left untreated, the surrounding teeth may become infected as well, leaving your mouth vulnerable to abscess formations.
