Root Canal Treatment

Root Canal treatment, also known as root canal therapy, is a treatment for the infected pulp of a tooth which results in the elimination of infection and the protection of the decontaminated tooth from future microbial invasion. Root canals, are the physical hollows within a tooth that are naturally inhabited by nerve tissue and blood vessels. Filling of the cleaned and decontaminated canals is done with an inert filling such as gutta-percha and epoxy resin to bind gutta-percha in the root canal.
