Root Canal Services
The root canals are the parts of the tooth where the pulp containing the nerves and the blood vessels that feed the tooth are found. Root Canal Treatment becomes necessary if an infection of the pulp inside the tooth occurs. If this type of infection spreads, it can affect the bone surrounding the tooth, and cause sever pain, swelling and eventual tooth loss.
Root Canal Treatment
In Root Canal Treatment, the tooth is anesthetized, and an opening into the chamber is made. Infected tooth pulp is removed, the root canals are cleaned and enlarged, and a filling and sealant is put in the pulp’s place. Having a protective crown applied to the tooth afterwards is usually necessary. The effects of the treatment are typically permanent, but the crown or canal filling may eventually need to be replaced.
