Endodontic treatment is necessary when the pulp, the soft tissue inside the root canal, becomes inflamed or infected caused by either deep decay, repeated dental procedures on the tooth, a crack or chip or an injury to a tooth. If pulp inflammation or infection is left untreated, it can cause pain or lead to an abscess .
The procedure is no more invasive than a regular filling. It involves removing the damaged parts in the tooth thoroughly disinfecting the entire area then refilling the tooth to a fully functioning condition. In our clinic we use the latest technology which facilitates the preparation of the dental roots for optimal filling.
