Root Canal Treatment

Root Canal Treatment is a dental procedure used to save a tooth with a diseased nerve. If the pulp, which provides nutrients to the tooth, becomes damaged or diseased, the pulp tissue dies.

Your tooth may get infected if the pulp is not removed. Left untreated, this may lead to loss of the tooth. The Dentist will remove the diseased pulp, file and clean the canals of the tooth, and seal the tooth off.

In most cases, a root canal tooth will require a crown. Root canal treatments usually take 2 to 3 visits to complete.
