About the treatment
The inside of a tooth, known as the pulp, contains nerves and blood vessels that can become infected or inflamed due to decay, injury, or trauma. During a root canal procedure, the damaged pulp is removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned. The space is then filled with a special material to prevent further infection and the tooth is sealed with a filling or a crown.
Benefits of a root canal procedure
This treatment is crucial in saving a damaged tooth and preventing the need for extraction. With proper care, a tooth that has undergone root canal treatment can last a lifetime. If you are experiencing pain or discomfort in a tooth, it is important to seek prompt dental care and find out if a root canal is necessary.
