Modern Root canal treatments aim is to reduce pain and sensitivity felt in a tooth. The pain is due to inflammation of the pulp which houses the nerve of the tooth.
Root canal is a treatment carried out if infection has travelled into the nerve of the tooth which can lead to severe pain and sensitivity. This can be commonly caused by decay, defective fillings or trauma.
Your dentist will carry out a specialized set of procedures to remove the nerve and pulp of the tooth and allow for healing of the infection. Root Canal treatment is a combination of cleaning inside the tooth, as well as medicinal treatments left inside the tooth. This is done to ensure that the tooth is cleaned of small bacteria.
