Root Canal Therapy
In the center of each tooth in our mouth is dental pulp, which supplies our tooth with nutrients and nerves. If something happens to that dental pulp—it is injured, infected, or is damaged in some other way—then the nerve within the pulp may die, eventually causing the tooth to die. Dentists will recommend root canal therapy as a way to save teeth that have received damage to their dental pulp and nerve.
