Do I need a root canal?

Does an abscessed tooth need a root canal or dental filling?

Answers

  • It really depends. In the very least an abscessed tooth means bacteria has gone deep into the pulp of the tooth and has caused an infection so a dental filling will not fix the problem. There could also be other causes such as a fracture or even an infection within the gums.
