This procedure is used to treat severely decayed or infected teeth. On the inside of a tooth, there is a soft material (pulp) that allows your teeth to feel sensation. If the exterior of the tooth is damaged, the pulp can be exposed and infection can set in.
To save your tooth’s structure, our dentist will remove the pulp and clean the inside of the tooth structure. The tooth will still have full function, just without the usual nerve sensitivity.
After this, the tooth is then sealed and filled to prevent any additional damage.
