Do you have a chronic toothache? This can be a sign of an infection in the inside of the tooth or the root canal. This video details why you might need a root canal in San Jose.
Advanced tooth decay can leave teeth vulnerable to infection. Once infection reaches the dental pulp, it can continue to destroy not only the tooth but also the surrounding bone. Without immediate dental care, complications can demand tooth extraction. If you suffer from tooth pain, contact an emergency dentist. To save your tooth, he may be able to perform root canal therapy that cleanses the tooth interior of the infection. Once your tooth no longer harbors any bacteria, your dentist can fill it with materials that harden and reinforce its strength. The placement of a crown can also safeguard your tooth against additional decay.
