If your tooth is damaged by a fracture or through decay, the nerve of the tooth may become damaged and infected. If this is untreated there is the possibility that the damaged pulp will cause infection that will damage the bone around the tooth and cause swelling and pain. In order to rectify this and to save the tooth, Endodontic treatment will be required and this involves opening the tooth and removing the damaged pulp, cleaning, shaping, filling and sealing the tooth. In most cases a crown is required to protect the tooth.
