Patients who require root canal treatment usually suffer from tooth pain that is caused by an infected tooth and/or severe pulp damage that is usually caused by an untreated cavity. Root canal treatment removes an infection from the root canal. Infected pulp is removed and abscesses are drained. The root is also cleaned and then filling is put in to prevent further infection.
If root canal treatment is not carried out, the infection will spread and the tooth may need to be taken out. Although widely regarded as a painful procedure, root canal treatment is not painful because local anesthetic is given.
Rely on us to look the way you feel.
