Root Canal Treatment

Our goal should always be to save our teeth. However, there are some cases that  cavities in teeth may reach the its inner most part, the pulp. When this happens, it cannot be directly restored by ordinary tooth fillings. The pulp of the involved tooth should be treated first to save the tooth — we call this root canal treatment. The procedure may include taking an x-ray of the tooth involved and several sessions in the dental office to make sure the tooth is free of any debris or  bacteria. When the root canal treatment is done, the tooth maybe restored or a crown may be placed to cover it.

Please visit your dentist for professional help.
