Root Canal treatment
Root canal treatment is needed when the blood or nerve supply of the tooth is infected through decay or injury. If the pulp becomes infected, the infection may spread through the root canal system of the tooth. The aim of the treatment is to remove all infection from the root canal. The root is then cleaned and filled to prevent any further infection. Root canal treatment is a skilled and time-consuming procedure. Most courses of treatment will involve two or more visits to your dentist.
