Root Canal Therapy

Root canal treatment (or endodontic treatment) is a dental procedure that replaces a tooth’s damaged or infected tissue (pulp) with a filling.

The pulp consists of nerve fibres, blood vessels, tissue fibres and cells located in the hollow space in the central part of the tooth and root. The tooth is filled with an antibacterial filling, and the tooth is “capped” with a crown for protection.The pulp inflammation is the main reason for toothache, infection and swelling.
