Have you ever had a bad toothache that’s aggravated with heat, cold, or pressure? Ever seen a pimple-like bump on your gums next to a painful tooth? Is one of your front teeth darker than the rest? All of these are signs that there may be an issue with the nerve that is inside the tooth. Sometimes teeth with deep decay, trauma, large cracks, or abscesses end up needing root canal therapy in order to get you feeling comfortable. By removing the infected, inflamed, and painful internal nerve and replacing it with a root filling material and covering the tooth with a crown, we can get you out of pain while still saving your tooth!
