Root canal- is used to save the entire tooth which is badly rotted and otherwise would have to be removed. The tooth will need to be drilled out, then the bacteria, infected nerve, and other decay will be removed and filled with some medicated dental material. When the root canal procedure is done, a cap or crown will be placed on the top of the tooth to keep it from breaking so it will be fully functional. In some cases, it might be better to extract the tooth, but a root canal can last a lifetime.
Periodontal therapy-effective in getting rid of any bacterial infection that will cause gum disease. It will help control the inflammation of the gums that might lead to tissue destruction that anchors your teeth to your jawbones. If it is not done the right way it can cause gingivitis and if you do not have it treated it might lead to periodontitis.
