After a tooth has experienced too much damage (decay, fracture, grinding) the living nerve buried deep inside your tooth may die. This may be a painless or painful scenario. A Root Canal procedure is a way to remove the nerve, and pain, from an affected tooth and allow you to keep it in your mouth.
IT IS IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND THAT ANY DENTAL FILLING, CROWN, PROSTHETIC ETC…IS A WEARABLE ITEM. NOTHING IS PERMANENT NOR LASTS FOREVER. DR RIGGS WILL ATTEMPT TO MAINTAIN ANY RESTORATION FOR AS LONG AS PHYSICALLY POSSIBLE.
