Root Canal

A root canal is a procedure to repair and save a badly damaged or infected tooth. It involves removing the infected area of the tooth, the nerve, and cleaning, disinfecting, filling and finally sealing it. The most common reasons root canals are required would be a cracked tooth, a deep cavity, multiple dental treatments or trauma to the tooth. Occasionally, a root canal is not possible due to extensive root decay so an extraction is the only option.
