Infected Nerve? How To Save My Tooth?
Root Canal Therapy
Inside each tooth, there is a bundle of blood vessels and nerves that supply nutrients and sensation to the tooth. When this bundle becomes infected and begins to die, eventually an abscess develops inside the tooth. Pain from this abscess is described as throbbing, and keeping you from sleeping at night. Many reasons can lead this abscess, for example cracked/chipped tooth, large and deep cavity, trauma, and gum disease. The best treatment for an infected nerve is Root Canal Therapy, which involves removing the abscess tissue inside tooth and restoring its center with a filling material.
