Root Canal Treatment
Root canal treatment is a procedure used to clear infected pulp away from the pulp chambers and canals of a diseased tooth.
Infections occur when bacteria are allowed to enter the pulp – often due to untreated decay or a crack in the tooth.
During a root canal, the tooth is opened and the pulp removed.
Biocompatible cement is used to fill the tooth before it is restored with a crown or other restoration.
