Endodontic Treatment – Root Canal Treatment
When the inside of the tooth is diseased or injured, the pulp tissue dies. If this tissue is not removed, the tooth gets infected and may cause pain. We provide root canal treatment to save the natural tooth. The dentist removes the diseased pulp, cleans the root canal (the inside chamber of the tooth), and seals it to protect it. Most of the time a root canal procedure can be done with little or no discomfort in one to two visits.
Dentists recommend an artificial crown after root canal treatment because it will help stop future infections and strengthen/stabilize the tooth. In most case, the tooth should last a lifetime if you regularly care for your teeth and gums.
