Treating an Abscessed Tooth

March 18, 2016 ADManage

If bacteria enter your tooth pulp, the tooth can become infected and become abscessed. While an abscessed tooth can be painful, treatment such as root canals in Park Ridge from an emergency dentist can stop your discomfort quickly.

Watch this video to learn more about treating an abscessed tooth. Root canals are the primary treatment for this kind of tooth infection and can be performed in the dental office as part of a standard appointment or by an emergency dentist if your pain is extreme. After a root canal, your dentist will place a crown over the remaining portion of your natural tooth for cosmetic benefits and to prevent further damage to that tooth.
