Root canal treatment

A root canal treatment is a common form of dental treatment that aims to save an infected or damaged tooth by removing the infection from the tooth’s root canals. This may be needed if bacteria have penetrated the pulp of the tooth, which is the soft tissue inside the tooth that contains nerve fibres and blood vessels.

A root canal treatment involves the dentist first localizing the area and then creating a small hole in the tooth to access the pulp chamber and root canals. The bacteria and dead tissue in the ducts are removed and the area is cleaned and disinfected.

After cleaning, the root canals are filled with a special material, called gutta-percha, to fill the canals and seal them. A filling is then placed over the hole in the tooth to protect it.
