SAVING YOUR NATURAL TOOTH
Root Canal Treatment
The root canal is a treatment to repair and save a badly damaged or infected tooth instead of removing it. The procedure involves removing the damaged area of the tooth (the pulp) and cleaning and disinfecting it, then filling and sealing it. Because of the complexity and difficulty of root canal therapy this treatment is always a challenge for the dentist. Sometimes is necessary to refer the patient to Endodontists specialized in root canal therapy.
