There are many reasons why a tooth may require root canal therapy. A deep cavity may enter the nerve chamber in the tooth causing the tooth to become painful and infected or the tooth may have been traumatized in a fall or while playing sports causing the nerve inside the tooth to become infected and discolored. Whatever the cause may be, root canal treatment (endodontic treatment) removes the infected, dying nerve from the tooth allowing the patient to keep their own tooth in their mouth rather than needing an extraction. After the root canal treatment is completed the tooth is most often restored with a crown to make the tooth strong and whole again. Dr. Sameh Ashour DDM, with Diploma in Endodontics (Chester University)- special interest in endodontics using the latest material and equipment to achieve greater results.
