Root Canal Treatment

Root Canal Treatment

Root Canal Treatment is required when a cavity or an injury leads to a damage to tooth’s root. In biological terms it is also referred as dental pulp. Pulp is the tissue present in the center of the tooth. When it becomes inflamed or infected, root canal treatment is necessary. Common causes of infection are a cracked or chipped tooth, a deep cavity or filling, or injury to the tooth. When a root canal is performed, a small opening is made in the tooth in order to remove the pulp. The healthy outer structure remains in place and the root is filled with a material. A crown is often necessary after a root canal for strength or discoloration.

Process involved in Root Canal Treatment (it can differ on individual basis):

  • X-ray
  • Anesthesia
  • Pulpectomy
