Root canal treatment:
What is root canal?
A root canal is the space within the root of a tooth. Part of a naturally occurring space within a tooth, it consists of the pulp chamber, the main canal(s), nerves and other anatomical structures such as blood vessels are cased within the root canals.
Root canal treatment (also called a root canal) is done when decay will likely damage or has already killed a tooth. During a root canal, a dentist or an endodontist removes the pulp from the center of a tooth and fills the pulp cavity. This can prevent the development of a painful infection in the pulp that may spread to other teeth. A root canal can also treat an infection that has developed into an abscessed tooth. This procedure can relieve toothache, stop infection, and promote healing.
A general dentist or one who specializes in diseases of tooth pulp (endodontist) can perform a root canal.
At Dentissimo Dental Care & Spa, we use the latest technology of Rotary root canal instruments for pain-free treatment and patient comfort. Single-sitting root canal is also possible, unless the tooth is chronically diseased or abscessed.
