If you are having any sorts of issues with the inner workings of a tooth, it will need to be treated immediately. This is because the inner parts of a tooth include the pulp, which is the life force of the tooth. If the pulp is damaged, it means that it will either need to be removed or the tooth will die. Through the use of a specialized field of dentistry known as Endodontics, it is possible to save teeth that have suffered damaged pulps.
Dr. Justin Karrel is trained in endodontics to help save broken or damaged teeth that have suffered any damage to the pulp. With the additional medical training provided, it is possible for dentists to use endodontic surgeries and root canal therapies to save broken teeth. In fact, every year in the United States, millions of teeth are saved with endodontic treatment such as root canals.
Through the use of advanced endodontic surgeries, it is possible for a tooth to be saved that otherwise would need to be extracted. Furthermore, a tooth could be repaired and protected to potentially last lifetime. Not only can a tooth be made more functional to allow for chewing foods, but it can also help improve your smile by allowing your teeth to remain with their natural look.
