Root Canal Therapy
Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic treatment, is a dental procedure in which the diseased or
damaged pulp (core) of a tooth is removed and the inside areas (the pulp chamber and root canals) are filled and sealed.
After Root Canal Therapy, it is usually (not always) necessary to cap the treated tooth with a custom crown in order to maintain the effectiveness of the procedure. It helps you maintain your natural smile, continue eating the foods you love and limits the need for ongoing dental work. With proper care, most teeth that have had root canal treatment can last as long as other natural teeth and often for a lifetime.
