Root Canal Treatment
Root Canal Treatment is used to treat a tooth that is infected or badly decayed. In some cases the tooth root can get infected, and if left untreated the infection can spread among the tissues around and the tooth might require extraction. With this treatment, the root of the tooth gets cleaned from the infection, the nerves are removed and the patients can use the tooth for a longer period of time. The root is cleaned and the tooth is either filled with a special material, or covered with a dental crown. With modern techniques and technologies, the operation causes minimal invasion and the results are aesthetically pleasing.
