Root Canal Treatment
Failing to remove pulp that has been compromised by infection eventually will cause the infection to spread to the tissue surrounding a tooth root. Left untreated, the bacteria in the infection can spread to the jawbone and cause the complete loss of the tooth.
Common causes of a tooth infection include the following:
- A tooth being cracked or chipped
- Significant decay from a deep cavity
- Injury to the tooth
