Root Canal Treatment
“Root Canal” can be used to describe the cavity in the center of the tooth. The pulp of the pulp chamber is the soft area within the canal. This is where the tooth’s nerve lies. A root canal treatment is aimed at repair, to save a badly decayed or an infected tooth. In simple words, during the root canal treatment the infected tissues are removed, the tooth is then cleaned, sterilized, filled and sealed. These procedure saves the tooth, tissue and eliminates dental pain caused by the decay. Without the treatment, the tissue surrounding the tooth becomes infected, and abscesses may form. In addition to tooth decay, other causes that might require a root canal treatment are – a broken tooth, a deep cavity or an injury to the tooth.
