Non-Surgical Root Canal Therapy
A root canal is a procedure to remove the infected pulp of the canal of a root and then replace it with inert material. Infection of the pulp can be caused by trauma to the tooth, deep decay, cracks and chips, or repeated dental procedures. Symptoms of the infection can be identified as visible injury or swelling of the tooth, sensitivity to temperature or pain in the tooth and gums. When your root canal therapy has been completed, your next step is to restore and protect your tooth with the appropriate restorative material your dentist recommends. To prevent further decay, continue to practice good dental hygiene.
