Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment is needed when the blood or nerve supply of the tooth (also known as the pulp) is infected through decay or injury. The treatment involves the removal of the nerve from the tooth by drilling a hole in the top surface of the tooth. The inside is cleaned out with disinfectants and needle like fine instruments. The root canal is then dried and a rubber filling placed down the inside of the tooth. This is then sealed with a white filling material to prevent any bacteria entering.
