What is a Root Canal treatment?
A root canal removes the pulp chamber of the tooth but not the roots of the tooth. The pulpal chamber is then filled with a suitable filling material. It is generally performed when the tooth cannot be restored any other way because the decay has reached the nerve of the tooth or the tooth has
become infected. Today, root canal treatments are no more painful than having a filling.
A follow-up appointment is important
Most root canals can be performed in two to three office visits. It is important to remember that after a root canal treatment you will need to make a follow up appointment with us to have the tooth permanently restored.
