Root Canal Therapy
Root Canal Therapy in Haverhill, Massachusetts
When the pulp (nerve) inside one of your teeth becomes diseased or injured, endodontic treatment is the last resort to save the tooth from extraction. The procedures of a root canal are as follows: An opening is made through the crown of the tooth into the pulp chamber. The diseased or injured tissue is removed and the root canals are cleaned, enlarged and shaped. The infected area is medicated. The root canals are filled. Once the root canal is complete and successful, a permanent porcelain crown will be placed on the tooth to allow you to function properly.
