Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment is a dental procedure that is used to treat a tooth that has become infected or damaged. This procedure involves removing the infected or damaged pulp from inside the tooth and sealing the root canal to prevent further damage or infection.

During the procedure, the dentist or endodontist will use local anesthesia to numb the area around the affected tooth. They will then create an opening in the top of the tooth and use special tools to carefully remove the damaged or infected pulp. Once the pulp has been removed, the root canal is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected to remove any remaining bacteria.

After the root canal has been cleaned, the dentist or endodontist will fill the canal with a rubber-like material and seal it to prevent any bacteria from entering the canal. Finally, a filling or crown is placed on the tooth to restore its function and appearance.

Root canal treatment can often be completed in one or two appointments, depending on the severity of the infection or damage. It is a highly effective procedure that can save a damaged or infected tooth and prevent the need for extraction.
