2. What is Root Canal Treatment?
Root Canal treatment is the process that’s used to treat pathological conditions inside a tooth that have affected its nerve (and frequently the tissue that surround its root too.)
Completing tooth treatment sets the stage so your body’s healing process can take place as effectively as possible, thus allowing the tissues surrounding your tooth to maintain a healthy state.
The procedure itself is basically a two stage process.
Cleaning the tooth’s interior: first portion of the procedure removes compromised and / or contaminates from within a tooth’s nerve space.
Sealing off the treated area: the procedure is completed by filling in and sealing off the cleansed space, so contaminates can’t leak back in, or out.
