Root Canal Therapy
When the cavity ultimately makes it way to the “nerve" of the tooth, root canal therapy is required. A root canal treatment is the removal or cleaning of bacteria within the pulp of the tooth. When done correctly, root canal treatment “saves” the tooth and prevents extraction. After the root canal, a filling followed by a crown is routinely provided to ensure completion of treatment. Many times, Dr. Pujara works in conjunction with an Endodontist who performs root canal treatment and Dr. Pujara takes care of the rest of treatment after the specialist.
