Root canal treatment involves the removal of inflamed or damaged tissue from inside a tooth and cleaning, filling and sealing the remaining space. With modern techniques and anaesthetics, people report that having a root canal treatment is about as unremarkable as having a cavity
Although the pulp is removed, your tooth remains, nourished by surrounding bone and gum tissues. With a permanent restoration, regular brushing and flossing, proper diet and periodic dental checkups, your tooth has an excellent chance for success.
Symptoms of an infected pulp can often include frequent and severe pain or sensitivity to hot or cold substances. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, contact our friendly team at Green Apple Dentistry to arrange a consultation.
