Root Canal

Endodontic treatment, commonly known as root canal treatment is needed when the pulp (soft tissue inside of the root) becomes inflamed or infected, this can be caused by many problems, most commonly, deep decay, repeated dental treatments on one tooth or a crack/break in a tooth. During this procedure a dentist will remove the pulp, clean the root canals, seal and either provide a filling or other restorative treatment like a dental crown.
