Root Canals

A root canal treatment is required to treat infected tissues within the tooth. The tissue is called pulp which has nerves and blood vessels. This tissue becomes infected and forms a dental abscess when tooth decay is left untreated, as a result of injury or compromised blood supply to the tooth.

Root canal treatment preserves the tooth by removing any diseased or dying tissue.

The bad reputation of root canal treatment does not come from the procedure itself but the fact of needing this procedure. So don’t leave a diseased tooth untreated to avoid it.

A crown is commonly recommended after a root canal treatment to preserve the tooth , since it becomes brittle over time.
