Frequently Asked Questions

After the inside of a tooth is injured or becomes infected or inflamed due to introduction of bacteria to pulp from deep cavities, traumatic injuries, tooth fractures and other conditions. There are nerves and blood vessels within the root canals which continue into the jaw. This infection can only be resolved by removal of the nerve by making a small hole in the top of the tooth, cleaning out and filling the inner injured and/or infected tissue or having the tooth extracted.
