Root Canal Treatment
Root Canal Treatment (or Endodontic Treatment) is the procedure used to save a tooth that has been damaged by decay/infection or injury. It involves the removal of the damaged nerve from the tooth.
Sometimes the area of the tooth that houses the pulp and nerve gets infected. This area houses the root canals, and if the tissue in this area gets damaged a toothache or abscess may occur.
Such teeth would have typically been extracted, but now Root Canal Treatment may be a solution.
Nerve damage to your tooth may have occurred for a number of reasons such as trauma, worn down teeth, teeth having extensive dental work, or broken or cracked teeth.
These can all lead to root canal pain, which should be investigated in order to prevent any further infections or possible loss of your tooth.
Root Canal Treatment may be able to save a tooth that would be otherwise lost permanently.
