What is root canal therapy?
Root canal therapy is also known as endodontic treatment. This is intended to remove the nerve/pulp when it gets inflamed or infected.
There are many reasons for it to be infected such as
- Excessive tooth decay
- Leaking crowns or fillings
- Repeated dental procedures done on the tooth
- Cracked or chipped teeth
How does root canal therapy heal the tooth?
In this procedure, the tooth pulp that is infected is removed; the inside part of the tooth is then cleaned and disinfected and then it is filled and then sealed Afterwards, the tooth is restored through the use of a crown or large filling.
Root canal therapy is much like the routine filling. This can be completed in several sessions.
