If the tooth nerve pulp is damaged and is causing great pain, a root canal treatment is generally performed to save the tooth.
When your tooth is damaged, or knocked out due to dental trauma, it can often be re-implanted by a skilled endodontist.
If the tooth is damaged in the nerve pulp, it can sometimes appear discolored, turning dark brown or grey. Conventional exterior whitening processes are unlikely to be effective, but endodontic treatment can help to lighten and bleach the tooth from the inside by using a special procedure.
The most common endodontic procedure is the root canal, in which the damaged nerve is removed in order to save the tooth. Endodontics is a type of dentistry that deals with saving teeth through several types of procedures that involve the nerve pulp and root of the tooth, including the surrounding tissues.
