Preserving the natural teeth is the best option for maintaining healthy dentition. Decayed and even badly broken down teeth can be aesthetically restored by root canal treatment.

A root canal is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected. During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed. Without treatment, the tissue surrounding the tooth will become infected and abscesses may form.
The root canal is cleaned to remove bacteria and then enlarged, shaped, and filled with medications that prevent infection. A temporary filling is put inside the opening of the crown to protect the tooth.
You should be fully healed from a gum graft in one to two weeks. You'll need to schedule a follow-up appointment with your periodontist a week or so after the procedure so that they can make sure you're healing properly and the graft is successful.
