root canal therapy (endodontics)

Root canal therapy in a nutshell is removal of irreversibly inflamed or infected nerves (pulp) with in a tooth. After thoroughly cleaning, shaping and disinfecting the empty space created by this procedure is sealed using special filling materials.

The alternative to this therapy is an extraction. So, root canal therapy can save a tooth that is infected preventing the potential of infection spreading to the rest of the body.

It is usually recommended that after root canal therapy, on an excessively load bearing tooth, the tooth is restored with a crown or an onlay to prevent further breakdown of the tooth.



Relax…There is no need to loose your troubled tooth… It may be possible to save it with Root canal therapy.
