Root Canal Treatment
Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic treatment, is a procedure in which the diseased or damaged pulp (core) of a tooth is removed and the inside areas (the pulp chamber and root canals) are filled and sealed.
Root canal treatment is the removal of the tooth’s pulp, a small, thread-like tissue located in the center of the tooth. Once the damaged, diseased or dead pulp is removed, the remaining space is cleaned, shaped and filled with an inert filling material. This procedure saves many teeth that would otherwise be extracted if not treated on time.
