If the tooth pulp or nerves of the tooth become damaged, our dentist may need to perform the endodontic treatment of root canal therapy. If the decayed tooth is left untreated, the tooth may die, requiring extraction. During this procedure, Dr. Amirreza Rafaat will remove the damaged tissue from within the tooth, clean the inside of the tooth and fill it with medication to promote healing. Our dentist will then likely place a dental crown over the tooth to return the tooth to its natural appearance and function.
