Root Canal Therapy
A root canal is a tiny canal inside the root of the tooth that carries the nerve and blood supply of the tooth. Treatment of this space can become necessary due to infection and/or traumatic injury. Treatment involves cleaning and shaping of the canal to remove diseased tissue. A specialized elastic filling material and sealer are placed in the canal to fill it. A temporary filling is placed until a more permanent restoration can be completed (usually a crown).
