What is a root canal treatment?
A root canal treatment is designed to remove the infection and decay that has occurred within the root canal of a tooth. Infected nerves in teeth can be very painful, and it’s important to have them treated before the infection grows. Inside the tooth is a soft tissue that commonly becomes inflamed or infected and causes pain for individuals. A crack or chip in the tooth and a tooth injury are just some of the reasons as to why the soft tissue can become damaged.
In order to treat the damaged root canal of a tooth, dentists advise that the patient undergoes a root canal treatment. During the treatment, the infected or inflamed inner soft tissue is removed, the canal is cleansed and disinfected, and then sealed with a rubber-like material. Once the root canal has been repaired, a crown or filling for protection is placed on the tooth.
Root canal treatments are relatively pain-free. By using modern anesthesia techniques, most patients say that they experienced no pain during the procedure!
