Root Canal Treatment

8df60594-2971-446e-99e8-003f00e32778Root canal treatment is a dental procedure that replaces a tooth’s damaged or infected pulp with a filling. The pulp consists of specialised dental cells, blood vessels, tissue fibres and some nerve fibres located in the hollow space in the central part of the tooth.

The tooth is numbed, the dentist opens into the tooth, measures and cleans the canals in the tooth, and fills the canals with rubber to seal the tooth and prevent any reinfection by bacteria. To protect the tooth after root canal treatment, ideally a crown is required to prevent fracture of the tooth in function.
