We can often save your natural tooth if it's badly decayed and/or infected.
When your teeth are damaged the inside of the tooth can become infected. This can then have a bad effect upon the pulp of the tooth, i.e., the blood vessels and nerves inside. If you do nothing about this the infection can begin to damage the bone, causing pain and swelling. If this happens to one of your teeth, come see Dr. Koplon to determine the best endodontic treatment, such as Root Canal Therapy or a Tooth Extraction to save the tooth.
