Brooklyn NY Root Canal Therapy

When the nerve of a tooth becomes affected by serious decay or infection, root canal therapy may be necessary to restore health and function to the tooth. Dr. Alpert may recommend root canal therapy for one of the following reasons:

  • The living tissue inside the tooth has been affected by decay
  • An infection or abscess has developed inside the tooth
  • The tooth has received significant injury or trauma

Root canal therapy is often the best option for patients with significant tooth decay as it will restore the tooth without adversely affecting nearby teeth. To learn more about your restorative dental options, please give our Brooklyn, NY dental practice a call.
