A root canal is a dental procedure performed to save your natural teeth and prevent the need for dental implants or bridges. In the center of your tooth is a nerve. If this nerve is infected, you may have symptoms such as swelling, sensitivity to temperature or pain in the tooth and gums. Infection can be caused by trauma to the tooth, deep decay, or cracks.
If you experience any of these symptoms please call to schedule an appointment for a consultation at CR Dental Group.
After a root canal, Dr. Jordana Contrucci Ruiz and/or Dr. James Reisman will most likely recommend a porcelain crown to protect the remaining tooth structure.
