This treatment involves the removal of the nerve or nerves from a tooth. This is usually performed if a tooth is infected (Abscess) or irreversibly damaged due to dental decay or trauma.
A root treated tooth is a dead tooth and will discolour over time. The tooth is also structurally weaker, so may require a permanent restoration later, such as a Crown.
