Dental health issues don’t always start on a tooth’s surface like a cavity, chipping, or cracks. Sometimes a tooth’s problem is at the root. When a tooth is infected or the pulp is damaged, the nerve within the pulp may die, causing the tooth to die. In order to salvage the tooth and avoid an extraction, SeRena Dental Centre performs a root canal in order to remove the injured, infected, or dead pulp. After the root canal therapy, our Delta dentists may use a crown or filling to restore the look of your tooth.
