Endodontics removes the infected dental pulp resulting from severe tooth decay, abscesses or injury. This treatment maximizes your chances of saving a tooth that otherwise would have been extracted.
Root Canal (Endodontics)
The canal is first cleaned and disinfected, then sealed with an inert biocompatible material. Finally, the tooth is restored with a filling or a crown. The type of restoration depends on the strength and location of the remaining tooth. The back teeth, which play an important role in chewing, generally require installation of a crown.
Good hygiene and regular checkups will help your tooth stay healthy as long as the rest of your dentition.
