A root canal is an endodontic treatment used to repair and save a tooth. It also treats and helps resolve the toothache caused by the infected root canal in the tooth.
Root canal treatment is usually completed over a period of three appointments. The treatment involves the removal of the nerve and diseased pulp. The inside of the tooth is cleaned out, the canal is reshaped and sealed for protection. Without treatment, the bone and gums surrounding the tooth will become infected and abscesses may form.
Root canal treatment is a safe solution for saving a tooth and maintaining your natural smile. Call Choimes Dental to arrange an appointment.
