Endodontics – Root Canal Treatment.
A tooth may be infected by bacterial infection ( caries ) which can spread to the dental pulp, causing a painful inflammation which can also affect the jaw bone. Every effort will be made to save the sick tooth, which involves removal of the inflamed tissue from the root canal system system and cleaning it.
After cleaning, the canal system is filled carefully so that no additional bacteria can penetrate inside. The effort to save a tooth through root canal treatment is intense but the tooth will be saved for your whole life.
