Laser Root Canal

Root Canal Pinehurst NCSometimes the nerve inside the tooth can cause teeth to become overly sensitive or painful due to very deep cavities, trauma, or infection. In these cases, it may be necessary to remove the damaged or diseased nerve tissue inside the tooth to stop the tooth from hurting or to get rid of the bacteria inside the tooth causing the infection.  Dr. Ridge performs this part of the root canal treatment using the laser.  Once the nerve is removed, it is replaced with a filling material to seal off the tooth from further invasion of bacteria. Once the root canal is performed, the tooth no longer has a blood supply and can become weak over time and a crown is usually indicated to help add strength to the tooth and protect the new root canal from bacteria.
