Root Canal Treatment is a procedure to remove the infected pulp of a tooth and clean the root canals. It is done in 3 stages:
1. Removing the infection
2. Measuring the depth
3. Placing the filling
The treatment is usually painless and takes about 3-4 appointments. After the treatment, a crown may be needed to protect the tooth.
Here are some of the benefits of root canal treatment:
• It can save a tooth that would otherwise need to be extracted.
• It can relieve pain and prevent further infection.
• It can improve the appearance of your smile.
• If you are experiencing tooth pain, it is important to see a dentist to determine if you need a root canal treatment.
