Dental Root Canal Treatment
Dental Root Canal Treatment (known as the ‘root canal’) becomes infected or a tooth is badly decayed, treatment may be necessary to remove discomfort, stop infection and save the tooth. In this procedure the nerve and pulp inside the root are removed as they aren’t vital to the tooth’s health or function and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and then sealed to prevent further problems. Sometime a small pin is inserted into the root to provide stability. Root canals are generally performed in one appointment, though additional appointments may be necessary if the infection is severe.
