Each of your teeth has three layers. The innermost section of your tooth is called the pulp, and it contains the blood vessels and the nerves that keep your tooth alive and healthy. From time to time, bacteria from an untreated cavity or even a microscopic crack may allow bacteria to reach the pulp of your tooth and cause an infection. In the past, this would have required a dentist to extract the tooth. However, Dr. Shuyuan Julian Yang in Parsippany, New Jersey has the skills and the technology to address problems with your tooth and its pulp. If you are feeling any pain in your teeth, don’t delay.
