Root canal treatment (also called endodontic therapy) is the process of removing decayed or infected tooth matter, along with the tooth’s nerve. Root canals are necessary to:
- remove tooth decay or infection.
- prevent future infections.
- restore the tooth’s strength.
It is an ideal treatment for patients who suffer from severe tooth decay or an infection inside of the tooth. Root canal treatment can help to save the infected tooth without having to extract it.
If left untreated, the infection can get worse and lead to other health problems and dental problems, such as a painful tooth abscess and bone loss.
? How long does the root canal treatment take?
A root canal treatment may take one or two appointments.
