When a tooth’s inner pulp is diseased or injured, it loses its vitality. This can be caused by cracked teeth, deep cavities, or traumatic injury to the tooth. In any of these cases, Dr. Frederick Prehn may recommend a root canal to remove the tooth’s pulp and preserve your tooth. Before proceeding with a root canal, our dentist and his team will evaluate your current oral health and determine if a root canal is the proper treatment. For those who do receive a root canal in Wausau, Wisconsin, our team at Prehn Dental Offices will ensure that you remain comfortable throughout your entire treatment.
