When an advanced cavity deeply penetrates the tooth and causes severe localized pain, a root canal procedure may be required to prevent further infection. Root canal treatments involve the removal of the nerve and tooth pulp containing harmful bacteria. Back Teeth are usually restored with crowns to match the rest of your teeth, but front teeth do not always need crowns. The only alternative treatment for a root canal procedure is a dental extraction.
