The team at Red Bank Smiles strives to use the least invasive treatments, but in some situations less conservative methods are required. For example, when infection has attacked the nerve of a tooth, the infection must be removed in a procedure called a root canal therapy. Once the affected tissue has been eliminated, the canal is filled with an antibacterial agent to prevent future infection.
If a tooth cannot be saved, we will recommend extraction. Completed quickly and without pain, extraction provides an effective solution to tooth damage when other options have failed to help.
