A root canal is part of the Endodontic division of dentistry. Endodontic refers to the treatment of the tooth as a whole; the root, the nerves and the inside, also known as the ‘pulp’. Root Canals is a popular treatment backed by lots of research, and is typically needed when the pulp of the tooth becomes diseased or infected and needs to be removed for optimal health of the tooth. The procedure is designed to help keep the natural tooth and to prevent reinfection.
A root canal is a minor procedure and is very easy to perform, it’s similar to a filling. The area will be numbed before starting the treatment. Once numb, the diseased pulp gets taken out. A tooth cannot survive without the tissues inside, so it will be filled or covered with a crown. The treatment will provide instant relief from pain.
Proper oral hygiene and care can prevent any major tooth issues and stop reinfection.
