Root canal therapy is an endodontic treatment that we may recommend if your tooth has become infected. The pulp, or inner tissues of the tooth, may become infected if decay or damage is very extensive and is not treated at an earlier stage. When left untreated, an infected tooth may die and require extraction. To ensure that your smile stays in optimal health, to relieve the pain caused by the infection, and to prevent the infection from spreading to other healthy areas of your mouth, our dentist may suggest a root canal in Bedford, New Hampshire. During root canal therapy, we remove the bacteria and infected tissues from the tooth, fill the tooth with a medicated material, and cap the tooth with a restoration like a crown. This avoids the need for extraction and allows you to keep your natural teeth strong and healthy.
