For many patients, poor oral hygiene can lead to cavities, and if left untreated, deep decay. With deep decay, the outer layer of the tooth has been eroded away deeply, leaving the inner nerve exposed and susceptible to infection. In order to prevent infection from claiming the affected tooth, root canal therapy is performed to remove the damaged inner tissue of the tooth and clear away any bacteria. After sealing the tooth with an inert, rubber-like material, a restoration is used to repair the structural integrity and functional surface of the tooth. Similarly, with injury, the shock of impact can irreversibly damage the inner nerve supply of the tooth, leaving it susceptible to infection. The treatment of choice? You guessed it! When you get your root canal in Oceanside at the office of Alan J. Schwartz DDS, you’ll also have some of the most advanced restorative options to choose from. Depending on the extent of the damage, you may want to go with a tooth colored filling, or a CEREC custom crown, for the seamless restoration of your smile.
