A tooth’s nerve is not vitally important to a tooth’s health and function after the tooth has emerged through the gums. Its only function is sensory – to provide the sensations of hot ,cold or bite overload. The presence or absence of a nerve will not affect the day-to-day functioning of your tooth. Treatment cost is based on the number of roots that need to be cleaned, not all teeth have the same number of roots. Most root canal treated teeth require reinforcement with a full crown to minimize long term risk of tooth loss due to fracture.
