What is Root Canal Treatment?
Root canal therapy is actually a process in which diseased, damaged or dead pulp (soft tissue inside your tooth with nerves and blood vessels) is removed from the canals of tooth, after which it is restored by cleaning, shaping and filling of the canals using a suitable restorative material.
Root canal therapy can be done in a single appointment or it might also take multiple visits depending on the situation of infected tooth.
The treated tooth is usually brittle and prone to fracture as there is not much tooth structure left due to a previous huge cavity. Hence after the treatment a crown should be placed on the tooth to restore its natural shape, appearance and prevent it from any possible damage or fracture.
Root canal therapy is one of the best options to save your natural tooth structure from further damage.
