- Relieve your pain and save your natural tooth.
A tooth abscess is a pocket of pus that is caused by a bacterial infection. After the tooth becomes irreversible inflamed, death of the tooth is inevitable. Once a tooth no longer has a blood and nerve supply, bacteria can penetrate the tooth resulting in a dental infection.
Root canal therapy removes the dead tissue, along with the bacteria and infection, allowing you to keep and function with your natural tooth. Once the source of the infection is gone, your body will respond by growing new bone around the root tips of the tooth.
