Root canal treatment is a way to save or repair teeth that are decayed or otherwise damaged.
The process involves removing both the pulp and the infected nerves. After thoroughly cleaning and enlarging the root canals, the dentist fills them with a special material before sealing it.
Root canal treatments enable you to retain the tooth instead of extracting it.
When Further Treatment is Necessary
