Root Canal Treatment in Merrifield VA

Root Canal Therapy Merrifield VARoot Canals are the treatment of choice when an injury or large cavity damages the tooth’s nerve. This is usually an emergency and one of the main causes of a tooth ache. In some cases, large fillings that are close to the nerve may be the cause of the tooth ache and a Root Canal may be needed. Untreated nerve damage can lead to infections and swelling. These types of situations are treated by taking out the damaged/infected tissues in the canals of the tooth and are subsequently filled with a permanent material. This procedure is highly effective in saving the tooth. After a root canal, it is highly recommended to build the tooth back up and to place a Crown over it to maintain the tooth.
