Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy is a dental procedure performed to save a severely infected or damaged tooth. It becomes necessary when the dental pulp, which contains nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue, becomes infected or inflamed. During the procedure, the dentist removes the infected pulp, thoroughly cleans and disinfects the root canal, and seals it with a biocompatible material to prevent further infection. A crown or dental restoration is typically placed on the treated tooth to restore its strength and function. Root canal therapy relieves pain, eliminates infection, and allows the tooth to be saved, avoiding the need for extraction.
