Dental x-ray

Benefits of Root Canal Treatment:

  • Removes a source of infection that could spread to other areas

  • Prevents further problems that could be caused by losing a tooth

  • Can relieve toothache

  • Less expensive than replacing a lost tooth

  • Root canal treatment is usually only indicated when the nerve and blood supply of the tooth is compromised

  • Root canal treatment aims to save the tooth and help prevent extraction

Root canal is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected. During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed. Without treatment, the tissue surrounding the tooth will become infected and abscesses may form.
