If a tooth is causing severe pain, or if the tooth is extremely sensitive to hot and cold temperatures, your tooth may be infected in the dental pulp and tooth nerves. These areas inside the tooth may become infected when decay or injury reaches past the outer layers of the tooth. If infection and damage in the tooth pulp and nerves are not treated, the tooth may die and require extraction. In order to prevent this, our friendly dentists provide root canal treatment. During root canal treatment, we remove the infected dental pulp, tooth nerves, and other tissues from the tooth. We then clean the tooth and fill it with a medicated material that restores the tooth’s health. Finally, the tooth is sealed with a dental crown or filling. In most cases, a root canal in Lawrence, Massachusetts can be completed in just one or two visits to Dong Won Kim Family Dental Care.
