How Norge Dental Center Can Treat Your Abscessed ToothChronic pain and discomfort accompanies an abscessed tooth, and you shouldn’t have to suffer. Norge Dental Center typically corrects an abscessed tooth in one of two ways:
- Antibiotics: Depending on the case, your dentist might prescribe and administer antibiotics in order to kill an infection.
- Root Canal: If the infection has spread to the pulp or lower bony structures and antibiotics are ineffective, a root canal may be necessary. This procedure involves removing the dead and infected pulp to restore the tooth to a healthier state.
