What Is a Root Canal?
A root canal is a treatment that helps restore or save a tooth that has become inflamed or infected.
Inside the centre of your tooth, there is a soft tissue called pulp. The pulp contains nerves and blood vessels to help feed the tooth and help fight infections. A damaged tooth or deep tooth decay can lead to infection of the pulp, resulting in the need for a root canal.
During a root canal treatment, your dentist will numb the area before using dental tools to remove the pulp from inside the tooth. Your dentist will then fill and seal the tooth.Book Appointment
