Sometimes Root canal therapy is required when the nerve of a tooth is affected by decay or infection. In order to save the tooth, the pulp (the living tissue inside the tooth), nerves, bacteria, and any decay are removed and the resulting space is filled with special dental materials, which restore the tooth to its full function.
We might recommend a dental crown to help strengthen a tooth that has been damaged by fractures, cracks, decay, large fillings, or root canal therapy. In some cases crowns are used to create a natural looking appearance for front teeth. Or a bridge to replace a missing tooth and repair your smile.
To replace a missing tooth, we may recommend dental implants, which act as an artificial root for the replacement tooth. The implants provide a firm foundation for fixed or removable teeth-coloured restorations.
