A root canal treatment can save natural teeth and prevent the need for dental implants or bridges. In a scenario of a tooth infection, the endodontist can remove the infected tissues from the enamel and clean the canal. It is then filled with a biocompatible filling material and restored with a dental crown.
If you have developed a dental infection, you may need to visit NuSmile Dental & Orthodontics for a non-surgical root canal in San Jose, California. Dr. Lawrence Wu, our dentist, offers non-surgical options to restore your smile to its optimal health.
