A filling will be needed after removing the decay from a tooth. There several materials that can be used, including tooth-coloured composite (white filling), silver amalgam, gold, and porcelain.

Root canal Treatment:
Many patients discover they need a root canal due to severe pain caused by infected tooth nerve, or when the infection spreads into the gums and forms an abscess. Other signs that you may need a root canal include:

  • Sensitivity to hot or cold substances
  • Tooth discoloration
  • Tender Gums
  • Pimple or bump on the gum
  • Swollen gums
  • Constant toothache

Root canals treat diseases or abscessed teeth. Once a tooth is injured, cracked or decayed, it is necessary to open the tooth and clean out the infected tissue in the center. This space is then filled with a pink material called gutta-percha and the opening sealed.

Keeping your tooth helps to prevent your other teeth from drifting out of line and causing jaw problems. Saving a natural tooth avoids having to replace it with an artificial tooth.

After the root canal is finished the tooth needs a large filling called buildup and a crown.
