Root canal treatment
The root canal is a layer of pulp found deep inside the roots of your teeth which contains nerve tissues. When pulp is infected a root canal treatment is needed to put an end to pain and abscess. During this procedure, the infected pulp tissue is removed, and the affected root is cleaned, disinfected and filled in. A crown is then fitted onto the weaken tooth to prevent future inflammation and improve aesthetic appearance. In many case root canal procedure can help to avoid tooth and the surrounding bone structure from being lost.
The number of root canals in the tooth may vary from one to four, and usually requires 2-3 visits in our Borough/Elephant&Castle dental practice.
