Root canal treatment (also known as endodontic treatment) is the treatment of a tooth’s infected pulp, the part of the tooth consisting of nerve tissue, blood vessels, and other cellular entities. The tooth’s pulp can get infected due to periodontal disease or traumatic injury, and it’s treatment is critical to prevent further microbial invasion.
The procedure involves removing the infected structures of the tooth in order to remove all decay. Then the area will be cleaned and decontaminated before the space is filled in with a sealant. Oftentimes the tooth is then fit with a crown, improving the appearance of the tooth and overall aesthetics of your smile.
