There are tiny canals within your teeth that may become infected. This leads to the pulp inside your tooth also becoming infected. At Sav Dental Berwick, we will remove any infection and perform a root canal procedure which involves cleaning and filling the canals. The tooth also receives either a filling or a crown.
Extracting the tooth will be a cheaper way out, but if possible, a root canal procedure would be the preferred treatment option.
By removing the tooth, the following issues may arise:
- Drifting of adjacent and opposing teeth
- Bone loss in the extracted area, changing appearance and causing functional issues.
