Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy is a restorative method to protect the tooth from decaying pulp by removing it completely. The pulp is an important part of a tooth responsible for providing it with vital nutrition. In case of an injury incurred by the root or a fracture in the tooth, the health of the pulp located inside the root canal can be compromised. Any decay in the pulp can lead to further decline in the health of the damaged tooth, increasing the possibilities of a permanent damage. Persistent problems like pain while drinking hot or cold drinks can be a sign of declining tooth health.

Through root canal therapy, the dentist will remove this decaying pulp, while substituting it with analytically chosen fillings for the strengthening of the tooth. The permanent nature of these fillings acts as a strengthening agent for the effected tooth, keeping it strong from the inside. This restorative method is durable enough to carry on for years without causing any trouble. But proper care after the procedure and a flawless operation is required to ensure the longevity of the treatment.
