When bacteria gets into the nerve of your tooth, it will cause an infection that could result in the loss of the tooth. It can be brought about by tooth decay, or some kind of physical trauma to the tooth, or jaw.

You will experience some pretty painful symptoms along with such an infection, which should bring you to your Aurora dentists before it can spread to the bone. They may recommend root canal to remove the affected tissue, and clean the area. Aurora dentists may prefer to perform the procedure over two or three appointments.
