Root Canal Treatment

When the damage to the teeth reaches the living tissue and the nerves, a pain is precipitated. The characteristics of the pain is sharp and the pain often aggravates during lying down posture. This cannot be treated with a dental restoration but requires removal of the infected tissue from within the root.

If the infection is not taken care of right away, pus can develop within the tooth and create an abscess. Further, in the long run it can spread to adjacent teeth if not timely treated.  

The procedure is designed to save the healthy portion of the tooth and avoid its extraction. Post root canal treatment, the teeth is reduced in size and crown is placed over it to prevent it from getting further damage. This ensures that the cavity is sealed.
