Infected teeth may cause severe pain, redness, swelling and infection of the surrounding gum and bone. It is best to treat teeth in which the nerve has become infected by performing a root canal. The inside of the tooth which is called the pulp contains blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue. During Root Canal Therapy, the infected and damaged pulp is removed. The canals inside the roots are cleaned, medicated, shaped, filled and sealed, leaving it looking and functioning exactly as before the treatment. Following root canal therapy on the back teeth, at Del Vecchio Dentistry, we may recommend a crown or onlay be placed on the tooth in order to strengthen it.
