Root Canal Therapy in Fairhope
Root canals are sometimes offered for infected teeth as an alternative to an extraction. This allows you to save your natural tooth after the tooth decay has infected the nerve of the tooth.
A root canal procedure is where the bacteria, tooth decay, and infected nerve are removed from the tooth and replaced with a filling material. Once the nerve and cavity are removed, the tooth is more prone to fracture and a crown is usually recommended. In some cases, Dr. Drew Knight may recommend that a specialist (endodontist) perform the procedure. If you’d like to learn more, please contact our Fairhope, AL location today.
