What is Root Canal Treatment?
Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic therapy, is a dental procedure used to treat infection at the center of a tooth (the root canal system). It is often necessary when the pulp inside your tooth, made up of nerves and blood vessels, becomes infected due to decay, repeated dental procedures, cracks, or injury. The treatment involves removing the infected or damaged pulp, cleaning and disinfecting the canal and then filling and sealing it to prevent further infection.
The Process of Root Canal Treatment
Root canal treatment at Arcadia Dentistry typically involves one or more visits. After numbing the tooth, an access hole is drilled into it and the diseased pulp is removed. The inner chamber of the tooth and root canals are then carefully cleaned and shaped. Afterward, these areas are filled and sealed with biocompatible material. In most cases, a crown is recommended to restore the tooth’s strength and protect it from further damage.
