When a cavity is too big or the nerves inside a tooth are affected, your dentist might recommend root canal therapy.
– Smaller cavities can be filled.
– Larger cavities with pain and sensitivity may require root canal therapy.
– Your dentist will try to save your tooth.
If you visit a dentist as soon as you experience a problem with your teeth, you may be able to avoid root canal therapy and have a simple filling instead.
“If you’re seeing evidence of a cavity, don’t delay in making an appointment with your dentist.”
