Root canal therapy is a treatment used to restore the health of a tooth that is damaged by infection in the dental pulp or tooth nerve. Root canal therapy involves removing the infected dental pulp and filling in the tooth. To effectively seal the tooth following root canal therapy, your skilled dentist may recommend a dental crown. Root canal therapy can restore the function and health of your smile, preventing the need for tooth extraction. To learn more about the benefits of root canal therapy and to schedule your consultation with Dr. Green, we invite you to contact our dental office in Pottstown, Pennsylvania.
