Root Canal treatment
A root canal treatment is performed to save and repair a severely broken or infected tooth.
Some signs and symptoms of endodontic problems are:
- Tenderness when chewing and biting
- Tenderness in the gums
- Teeth that are sensitive to hot drinks or foods
- Tooth discoloration
Root Canal Treatment involves removing the pulp (the live tissue inside the tooth), cleaning and disinfecting root canals and then filling and sealing it.
The common causes that disturb the pulp are:
- A Deep Cavity
- A cracked Tooth
- Repeated dental treatment
- Or Trauma.
Root canal treatment will help:
Preserve your appearance by retaining the affected tooth
Allow chewing with comfort
Maintain neighbouring teeth in their positions
