Root canal treatment
Root Canal Therapy is a treatment that enables you to keep a tooth that might otherwise need to be extracted. The treatment is used to stop pain and treat teeth with dental abscesses. The treatment involves removing dead and infected material from the canals that run along the roots of the teeth.
Root canal aims to reduce the bacteria by cleaning out the tooth, removing the nerve to prevent further pain and putting a filling in the canal to protect the tooth.
Relieves pain. Root canal treatment is often done to reduce the pain and discomfort associated with an infected or damaged tooth. Once the damaged pulp is removed, the pain reduces.
Prevents further infection. If left untreated, an infected or damaged tooth can cause more serious oral health problems.
Saves the natural tooth. Root canal treatment can save a natural tooth from extraction. This is important because a missing tooth can cause problems with chewing, speaking, and the alignment of surrounding teeth.
Improves oral health. Root canal treatment can help maintain the overall health of your mouth. By removing the infected pulp and restoring the tooth, you can prevent further decay and promote a healthy smile.
