Teeth are made up of several layers. Each layer works to protect the tooth from harm. The layers of a tooth include the outer layer of enamel, the secondary layer called dentin and the inner pulp. When decay begins in a tooth, it typically can be treated right away, saving the tooth from further harm. If left untreated, decay can spread deeper in the layers of the tooth. If the decay reaches the pulp of the tooth, it can cause a lot of pain. Once it spreads this far it will require root canal therapy in order to save the tooth from extraction. 

We Save Teeth & Get You Out of Pain

At Dental Wonderland, we work hard to save teeth from extraction and will do everything we can to restore a tooth before recommending that it be pulled. Treating dental decay right away is recommended so that it doesn’t spread further into the tooth or other parts of the body and cause more pain and harm. 

Root Canal Therapy

If root canal therapy is recommended, the pulp of the tooth will need to be removed in order to save the tooth. Root canal therapy can typically be completed in just one visit. The area around the tooth will be numbed and your dentist will make sure you are completely comfortable before beginning treatment. Once treatment begins, your dentist will work to carefully remove all decay from inside the tooth and also remove the infected pulp of the tooth. Your tooth will then be cleaned and sealed for protection. A dental crown will be needed to restore your tooth following treatment, but you’ll be able to use your tooth just like normal again—and free from pain!
