Root Canal Treatment

What Is Root Canal Treatment?

It is a treatment method applied when the soft tissues inside the teeth, known as pulp, are infected. Infected pulp can cause toothaches, sensitivity, and tooth loss. Root canal treatment removes the infected pulp, eliminating the infection and saving the tooth. Root canal treatment is an effective method to prevent tooth pain and loss. With proper care, it provides a long-term solution.

When Is It Necessary?

It is usually necessary due to severe decay, dental fractures, or dental trauma.

How Is It Done?

During the procedure, the pulp of the tooth is accessed and damaged tissues are removed. The canals are cleaned and sterilized with special instruments and solutions. Then, the canals are filled with filling material, and a permanent filling or crown is placed on the tooth.
