Treating an Abscessed Tooth

Tooth pain often indicates that an abscess, or infection, has developed inside the tooth interior. This video explains how a dentist can address this type of infection.

When tooth decay reaches the inside of a tooth, it destroys the soft tissues that reside there. When blood vessels and nerve endings suffer from bacterial infection, a dentist must remove the unhealthy pulp. This necessitates a root canal in which the dentist extracts the interior tissues with files that can reach the center of the tooth. Once the tooth is free of the infection, the dentist can seal it and add a crown to restore its strength, appearance, and function.
