Root canal treatment
Root canal treatment is used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or infected.
Root canal treatment is performed when the pulp which is composed of nerves and blood vessels in the tooth become infected or damaged. During the root canal treatment, the pulp is removed, and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed.
People often fear root canal treatments because they assume they are painful. Actually, most people report that the procedure itself is no more painful than having a filling placed. The discomfort experienced in the period leading up to seeking dental care is more often truly painful, not the procedure itself.
A root treatment will vary in price depending on how may roots the tooth has, radiograph’s required and the size / material of the filling to be placed once the root treatment has been completed.
