Endodontics or root canal treatment is a dental procedure that replaces a tooth’s damaged or infected nerve with a filling so that you are able to keep your natural tooth. Damage to the nerve may be caused by untreated dental decay, decay beneath a filling, tooth damage due to trauma, tooth grinding (bruxism) or gum disease.
The root canal procedure involves removing the infected or damage nerve from the root canal over a series of dental visits. The root canals are sterilised and shaped to a form that can be completely sealed with a filling material to prevent further infection. Afterwards a crown or large filling to restore or protect the tooth may be necessary, as a tooth after undergoing treatment may be more brittle.
