When a tooth is cracked or damaged due to breakage or decay, dental tissue and the nerve inside the tooth can become infected.
Inflammation and nerve sensitivity caused by infection can often cause discomfort and pain. If left untreated, infections can develop into abscesses and spread into surrounding tissues.
Root canal treatment is a common endodontic procedure. Contact your Arlington dentist – Dr. Rima Kanbaragha today to schedule a consultation. If you are located in Crystal City, please give us a call. We happily serve patients in the surrounding areas.
