Root Canal Treatment
Root canals is an effective and safe treatment for teeth whose pulp has become inflamed or infected. It can also be required in other situations to help save and restore a tooth. It is the process of removing infected or injured tissue from inside the crown or roots of a tooth. Once cleaned the canal is disinfected, shaped, filled and sealed with a natural rubber-like material called gutta percha. The opening of a tooth is then sealed with either a temporary or permanent filling to prevent future infection.
